    Ok, my bad. I just packaged the source folder on my computer and forgot to run make clean . You need to get rid of the compiled files.
    So run "make clean" first, then "make".
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"
    It compiles! Ship it!

    It looks like a problem some other users are having as well. Check this post.

    Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Logitech Cordless Click Plus - more usable with btnx "out of the box" than any of the other systems I've tried. btnx thinks it's an mx600.

    Seems to work fine for left, right, middle (scroll click), back and forward buttons.

    ATM tilt left/right also map to back/forward respectively, and there is a little button on the top is equivalent to middle click (Logitech use to pop up a quick window selector by default in windows).

    I have been trying various other howto's so there may be some other activity going on that makes these functions overlap.

    When I run btnx from the command line I get


    Detected mouse: mx600 Vendor=046d Product=c50e
    Did not find additional event handlers. No problem.
    Device and event handler detection complete.
    -Using event: event2
    Opened handler: /dev/input/event2
    Opened handler: /dev/input/uinput
    Opened handler: /dev/input/uinput
    No startup errors

    Hex dump attached.

    It has the same problem as the MX1000, MX610, and MX600 because they all use the same product IDs. That's why btnx thinks its an MX600. Not really a problem, the right configuration file just has to be copied after installation.

    And if you have configured your mouse before, it will cause some problems. The troubleshooting section has some possible solutions for that.

    The mouse wheel click seems to send a lot button presses sometimes. But you probably don't want btnx to handle that anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    But I'll look at this more later (maybe tomorrow), when I have more time.
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"

    I presume the product ID is actually the RF USB device. On Windows the Logitech software can tell what device(s) is/are connected to the wireless receiver in so it must have some means of interrogating the input device itself to identify it.

    I wonder if it would be possible to capture the data that is used by the windows software with some kind of USB traffic sniffer, and then clone it in your software.

    But I'll look at this more later (maybe tomorrow), when I have more time.
    Thanks,

    This is probably correct. And it's most likely a proprietary protocol.

    Linux machines need a custom kernel to sniff USB traffic (at least Ubuntu distros). The best way to go about it would be to sniff the USB traffic on a Windows machine with SetPoint software installed.

    However, it's all the same to btnx, because btnx would need to be a kernel module to accomplish this. I'm not sure though, it might be possible to talk with the mouse through the USB interface library in user space, but even this might be troublesome because of the closed protocols involved.

    Not that this matters once btnx-config is released. It's getting quite close to a state where it can be released for testing.

    Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    This looks really neat. I'm excited as the proud owner of an MX Revolution.

    I have 1 quick question, though. I browsed through your SVN repository, and there're many more recent tags than 0.2.11 (the latest in SVN is 0.2.8), yet I'm only seeing a tar for 0.2.11, and 0.2.11 is listed as the most recent version on http://ollisalonen.com/btnx.html. Is 0.2.8 usable and you forgot to tar it up, or should we stick with 0.2.11?

    Thanks! I'm excited to try this out.

    0.2.11 (eleven) is the newest one. Go ahead and have fun with it!

    Oh, haha, duh! I was off (I was looking at 8 vs 1 instead of 8 vs 11).

    [edit]
    And by the way, this is fantastic. It does pretty much everything I'd like. Thanks!

    All I was doing was moving the mouse around. No scrolling, or other buttons.
