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

    I had the right-and-middle-click-when-pressing-side-buttons problem too and found a workaround. It seems like what happened was my xorg.conf said I had a 3 button mouse. Now, when I pressed the thumb buttons, it detected that they were pressed, but it thought it didn't have any buttons above 3! So, it just mapped them to 2 and 3 instead. The solution was to change the line
    Code:
        Option         "Buttons"         "3"
    to
    Code:
        Option         "Buttons"         "12"
    Now, if I turn off btnx and look in xev, when pressing the buttons they come up as 8 and 9, which aren't mapped to anything in X by default. Turning btnx back on, they work perfectly!

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

    I was wondering if anyone could help me configure btnx. I have it installed properly with version 0.3.1. I was able to have the program detect my buttons. With the Back button I am trying to use the BTN_BACK and Forward with BTN_FORWARD. I checked in the enabled and saved the configuration. Testing the forward/back buttons on a web browser doesnt give the intended result that I thought i'd configured. Instead it does what its default was ever since I plugged it in which seems to be a right click or some sort of menu.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!
    I'm fairly certain that is a physical switch. I don't think there's a real middle click on the mouse. I end up using the Search button.

    It's indeed a physical switch I ended up using the second scroll button

    oh man,lol. i just got the mx revolution and tried btnx. its promising but all kinds of weird things are happening.

    firstly a movie ive got on my desktop keeps getting copied so i always ahve 2 copies on the desktop. i dont know what buttons i may have clicked. pcm audio volume keeps going lower and lower, after a few hours its so low i cant hear music and have to reset it in alsamixer. whenever i use the back or forward buttons inside firefox gwget opens and downloads every item on the page im on.
    random dirs in my homedir are turned into symlink pointing to themselves kinda.
    i guess i gotta fiddle a bit more, lol.
    and i should probably read this entire thread

    im using feisty64, with compiz-fusion btw

    edit: i think most things are ok now, its just the back and forward buttons sending additional commands it seems

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

    Dang. Now that I know this:
    Code:
    # Thumb wheel forward. 
    # Does an Alt+Left. Ex. Firefox forward
    Button
    rawcode	=	0x01011800
    type 	=	1
    keycode =	KEY_LEFT
    mod1	=	KEY_LEFTALT
    EndButton
    
    
    # Thumb wheel back. 
    # Does an Alt+Right. Ex. Firefox back
    Button
    rawcode	=	0x01011A00
    type 	=	1
    keycode =	KEY_RIGHT
    mod1	=	KEY_LEFTALT
    EndButton
    I run btnx, and do the mouse detection, and I never get the forward button to work once I've sat still for 5 seconds, then pressed all the buttons, then clicked the button on the top.


    *edit:

    muahahahaha.

    Turned off compiz desktop effects stuff, and tried it again. It works.

    Thanks!

    *edit:
    Oops, when I hit forward, I not only go forward one page, but I also get a minimize, etc. window popping up, too.

    What could be causing that, I wonder? I can live with it for now, I guess.

    Heya everyone.

    I'm looking at getting a new mouse, and was recommended the MX Revolution.

    I just wanted to ask whether btnx works consistently and well enough with them for me to justify getting an MX Revolution. Does it?

    I don't need ALL the buttons to work. I'm mostly looking for a comfortable feel and a FAST, precise scrollwheel. Other buttons are pretty much bonuses. Also, I'd like the side scroll wheel to work as well because if it didn't, that'd just be a waste.

    Thank you!

    Hot diggity dog! My forward and back buttons work in xp when I run it in VMWare now.

    (okay, was it btnx, or service pack 2 that I installed the minute I booted to xp?)

    Errors with ./configure

    I am getting the following error when I attempt ./configure:

    checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
    checking for GTK... configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >=
    2.10.11) were not met:

    No package 'gtk+-2.0' found

    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.

    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GTK_CFLAGS
    and GTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

    "pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0"


    I do have gtk+2.0 (2.12.0-7) installed. The issue seems to be that the config file is looking for a gtk+-2.0, namely with a hyphen in the name. I have none of those environment variables set (would have no idea what to set them to).

    I should note that I'm on Mandriva 2008.0

    Any ideas?
