    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    To get the side buttons working on my Logitech G3 mouse I followed the guide way back on page 1, substituting b:6 for b:8 and b:7 for b:9 in xbindkeysrc, as suggested for tilt wheel mice, even though the G3 has a normal scroll wheel.

    My mouse now works perfectly, thanks.

    In my 7.10 Installation I was having problems getting these steps to work for my Logitech MX518. In fact X bombed out on me from the first edit.

    I dug up some old notes I had when I was trying to get this to work with 6.0?

    I simply dropped this in:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"evdev"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    	Option		"Buttons" "5"
    	Option		"ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    	Option		"ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
    	Option		"Name"	"Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse"
    EndSection

    This may have already been pointed out, but its a big thread and I would suggest that it be added to main page as it helped me out.

    http://www.chrisweldon.net/2007/01/1...roblems-solved

    Basically I just needed to add:
    Code:
    “SendCoreEvents”
    After the input mouse declaration in the ServerLayout section.
    So mine looked like:
    Code:
    Section “ServerLayout”
    ...
    InputDevice “Configured Mouse" "SendCoreEvents"
    ...
    EndSection
    After that it worked like a treat

    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    I was able to get the side buttons on my Mx518 to work (excellent), but I was using two mice before (I had them both plugged in at the same time) and now my other mouse (trackball) doesn't work. Any suggestions??

    -Steve

    I apologize for being an uber n00b.

    Also, here is what my original xorg.conf looked like:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"mouse"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    	Option		"Device"	"/dev/input/mice"
    	Option		"Protocol"	"ImPS/2"
    	Option		"ZAxisMapping"	"4 5"
    	Option		"Emulate3Buttons"	"true"
    EndSection
    Here is what I replaced it with:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"evdev"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    	Option		"Name"	"Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse"
    EndSection
    THANKS!

    Question Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    I have just tried the guide on page 1 on ubuntu 8.04 rc 64bit, but it appears not to work. After making the changes to my xorg.conf I was able to restart udev, and x. However the mouse will not respond, although the laser is lit.

    I suppose that some sort of changes have been made between 7.10 and 8.04?

    The extra buttons on my logitech mx518 work within firefox with the standard setup from installing ubuntu. Thus I also tried the following instructions to see if I could get the buttons to work in Nautilus anyway without the udev driver, no joy, but my linux ability is a bit limited so I do not know how to analyse what is not working in this situation.

    The problem is most likely that the X developers changed evdev to no longer use the "name" option to identify devices; instead you must use a device ID. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ev/+bug/173833 for discussion and (in the lower half) solutions.

    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    In Ubuntu 8.04. I need to add
    Code:
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/event3"
    and it works, but when I start UT2004 the mouse is acting up. I can't use the mouse at all. It's like the mouse-pointer is outside the game-window or something. When I start playing, its like having 1000000 in sensitivity on the mouse and all I see is the floor.

    I'm using Kubuntu, and in kcontrol I can choose form 50 different keyboards. Why is it that there is no mouse to choose. I think its really bad that 2008 we still have to edit xorg.conf to have all buttons on our mouse working. Isn't the mouse next to the keyboard the most important tool we use on a computer?

    Well, enough whining, hope someone has an solution to my problem.

    I agree. This is an area that could use a lot more work I think. Wish I had the actual skills to do something other than just whinge

    Have you tried btnx? You can find information via Google and in other forum threads. It's still beta and must be compiled, but especially given that evdev is harder to work with now than in previous versions of Ubuntu, it's probably worth your time to look into it. I think it still has a long way to go to be a major improvement over hand editing xorg.conf, but for some situations it works well.
