View Full Version : [kubuntu] 8 button mouse, how to swap buttons in kde

January 2nd, 2009, 01:42 AM

I've been using ubuntu for a few months, really liking it (ubuntu 8.10 with kde desktop installed through synaptic).

I've just started trying the kde environment, it seems quite nice, but I cannot find out how to swap extra mouse buttons.

I'm using a Logitech Trackman Optical (8 buttons+scroll wheel), it's a nice trackball, but the default button layout doesn't make much sense.

In gnome I've used .xmodmap to swap right/middle click to buttons that feel more natural, but I can't find the kde options to do the same (the kde mouse options only let me swap the left/right buttons, not buttons 3/4/5/etc).

Do I need to copy xmodmap to a kde directory? What config files should I be looking at?

Any help appreciated.
