    Sorry for the confusion, I was just being stupid. I didn't have the source installed. Sigh..... Am now in the process of detecting, etc. Thanks much.

    No problem, happens to us all. Tell me if it works in Mandriva 2008 without any additional hacks.
    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!

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

    When attempting to start the btnx service I get the error message, "/etc/init.d/btnx: line 34: /lib/init/vars.sh: No such file or directory"

    Any ideas?

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

    Commenting out line 34 (reference to vars.sh) which then caused the following errors:

    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 130: log_daemon_msg: command not found
    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 70: start-stop_daemon: command not found
    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 79: start-stop_daemon: command not found
    /etc/init.d/btnx: line 143: log_end_msg: command not found

    I tried commenting these out, which then caused more errors, and I ended up getting myself hopelessly hosed. Not sure anymore what to comment out and what not to.

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

    Ever since updating to Gutsy, my thumb buttons are being buttons 2 and 3 for X again. Here's my xorg.conf mouse section:

    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"   "False"
        Option      "Buttons"   "12"
    EndSection
    Any ideas, guys?

    Try changing the button number mapping with xmodmap as described in the btnx manual (troubleshooting section 9.2.3).
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"

    The service script in /etc/init.d/btnx is made from a Debian skeleton script. It apparently makes calls that are Debian (or Debian-based distros, ie Ubuntu) specific.

    I will have to change this to make it compatible with other distros. Mandriva has start-stop-daemon, right?
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"

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

    A user made the suggestion to me over email to integrate revoco into btnx. A great idea, and I started to work on it. This will allow MX Revolution users to configure revoco in btnx-config.

    I'm waiting for a reply from the author of revoco in order to clear up any questions regarding copyrights and distribution. Let's hope he appreciates the idea.

    EDIT: for those who are not familiar with revoco, it is a program that allows MX Revolution users to change the behavior of the mouse wheel. You can make the wheel permanently free-scrolling or click-to-click. This allows for the use of the wheel-press, which can then be used in btnx as a different button. There is some other functionality as well.

    I'm having the same problem with my MX Revo's thumb buttons. I tried the xmodmap thing, but then I lose right click functionality alltogether if I remap button 3 to something else. Here's whats in my xorg.conf

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Configured Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "CorePointer"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option "Buttons" "12"
    EndSection

    Are you also on Gutsy? Try changing your InputDevice options like described in the manual's troubleshooting section 9.2.1. It might or might not work.
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"
