View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mouse help?????

January 2nd, 2009, 10:19 AM
I have an Intellimouse explorer (Shouldn't really matter but whatever)
It has 2 buttons on the side, buttons 8 and 9. They are normally used for browser back and forward, but i'd like to change them to control the volume. I've found a guide on modifying imwheelrc, but it doesn't really explain the syntax.
Thanks in advance

Hi Shadow

As IMPORTANT as the human interface with a computer IS, Ubuntu don't think so!

There is little to no Meeces support in Ubuntu!

I dumbed down from a 7 button mouse to a 3 button mouse, figuring since it was the most COMMON meece configuration these days, that it would be support.
What I found was NO SUPPORT for the center button of any kind. It's set to a default condition used by less than 1/2 of 1% of the population of computer users!

I also found NO SUPPORT for another primary user interface, the keyboard!
No business class keyboards are supported in Ubuntu.......

I don't know why the TWO PRIMARY user interfaces with a computer are NOT supported, other than to just make them work at bare minimum levels.

Makes no sense to me!

all the media buttons on my keyboard work. and the buttons on my mouse work too. i would just like to change what they do. I can do it with autohotkey under wine, but i'd rather not.
