    Here is my xev output for my back key:



    And foward:




    This what you asked for right?
    Yes, now the Left and Right are capitalized, right?
    And can you also give me the xev output for those buttons with xnidkeys turned off?

    $ killall xbindkeys
    $ xev

    Worked perfectly the second time I tried it. First error was completely my fault. But it leads me to a question/problem.
    before I changed anything:
    Code:
    enzo@reboot:~$ ls /dev/input/
    event0 event1 event2 mice mouse0 ts0
    Here was my error:
    I thought, I'll use event3 since it's next in line. Thing is, I didn't change your code (my fault for not reading thouroughly) where you change the xorg to something like Option "device" "/dev/input/event9". So I told it event3, but it was trying event9 and my X server crashed. Thank you for underlining the word WARNING. Really saved me.

    Here is my problem:
    Code:
    enzo@reboot:~$ ls /dev/input/
    event2  event9  mice  mouse0  ts0
    enzo@reboot:~$
    Where did event0 and 1 go and what did it do? Am I in trouble?

    Edit: I just noticed the volume dial on my keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have the Logitech Wireless MX duo (I believe it's the mx700 mouse, not sure about the keyboard).
    Hmm, I think you'll need to somehow seperate the mouse and keyboard since they probably use the same receiver. I still haven't quite figured it out though. >_<

    AFAIK, this is a Windows thing, it's just the way Windows works.

    #Toggle Pause Video
    "dcop kaffeine KaffeineIface pause"
        m:0x0 + b:17
        Pause
    This is actually also an issue-- the "Master" volume in KMix does nothing, my real volume is controlled by the PCM volume. But I couldn't find a dcop command to allow me to increase the volume of the PCM device (rather than set an absolute). dcop kmix Mixer0 increaseVolume only increases the "Master" volume, and no additional parameters I've found change that.
    That, I don't know.

    , but adding in a ZAxisMap line makes X crash, so no go there. Any ideas on enabling the tilt wheel?

    ...

    The keys reported from xev are as follows: Left is b1, Middle b2, Right b3, scrollup b4, scrolldown b5, tilt left b11, tilt right b12, Media key b10, side forward b9, side back b8, Volume up b13, Volume down b14, Mediaforward b15, Mediaback b16, Play b17.

    Thank you all for any help... I consider myself fairly linux literate, but getting my media mouse working has been... harrowing.
    Install xmodmap. Then do:

    Code:
    gedit ~/.Xmodmap
    Paste this into there and save it:

    Code:
    pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7 10 11 12 13 14 15
    Then run xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap and if it complains about too little buttons add 16 17 etc untill it's satisfied. If it says there's too many, try deleting some starting at the end untill it works. Then give me the xev output.

    I think we will because is seems lmctl speeds up the sampling rate of the mouse. And since the mouse and keyboard probably use the same driver I'm having an interesting side effect... UT2004 is playing blazingly fast. I don't just mean the frames are fast, but the entire game is screaming. Bots move faster, I move faster guns fire faster.

    I'm thinking it's because it's getting timing info from the keyboard and since lmctl might be speeding this up it's move faster too.

    There is an option in Firefox to enable this.

    Hmm, that's weird, LMCtl shouldn't affect keypress speed at all.

    I'll turn off lmctl and play a game and see what happens, but I'm sure this is why.

    Or check "Use autoscrolling" in Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> General.

    Thanks for the advice. xmodmap wanted there to be 20 buttons.

    The xev output remained the same for the buttons (from my last post above). Tilt left is button 11, tilt right is button 12. No key registers as 6 or 7. 8 and 9 are the side "forward/back" buttons on the left of the mouse. 4 is scroll up, 5 scoll down.

    I notice you set 8 and 9 before 6 and 7 in the pointer line... should I try putting 11 and 12 there instead?

    Thanks for the advice!
