    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    pianoboy3333 - I really don't know what to tell you. I've been using Dapper now for some time, and actually evdev is broken in Dapper, so none of this is working.

    I'm hoping the devs will fix this problem in the June 1 release of the final Dapper. When that happens and I get it working again, I'll post it here or in a new "how to."

    This thread will basically be obsolete in 5 days.

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    I have the 6.06 Drapper installed and this is what I used to get my G7 working:

    Note your Phys and Device will be different from mine. You can check what your is by "cat /proc/bus/input/devices" as stated by the OP.

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "evdev"
            Option          "CorePointer"
            Option          "Dev Name"      "Logitech USB Receiver"
            Option          "Dev Phys"      "usb-0000:00:1d.0-1/input0"
            Option          "Device"        "/dev/input/event2"
            Option          "Buttons"       "8"
            Option		"ZAxisMapping"	"4 5 7 8"
    EndSection
    Can't seem to get xbindkeys working though ... =(

    ricesteam - glad to see you got yours going. I have been struggling a lot with this. I'll get it going, then another day on reboot it won't work. Then I'll use an older version of evdev and it will work for awhile, then break. I'm not sure why the evdev driver is so flaky.

    Now I do use xbindkeys, so maybe you can post your .xbindkeysrc file and let us know what you it is you want to do.

    I'm still pretty new to linux, so I'm not sure why yours is unstable. A lot of people are reporting the evdev is a little buggy.

    Actually I had to revert mine back to the default config since I couldn't get xbindkeys working; with the "logitech" config, I couldn't make my windows transparent via XGL/Compiz which is vital to showing off linux to your friends

    Hopefully someone more experience and helpful enough can solve this problem and report back.

    My .xbindkeysrc was copied/pasted from the settings recommended by the OP. I'm not sure why it didn't work. It was loaded and xev reported that all my buttons on my G7 worked.

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    Realize that the "buttons" might be identified differently with the evdev driver. On mine, whereas buttons 7 & 8 were previously the tilt wheel and 6 was the "back" button, now under evdev, it has buttons 6 & 7 as the tilt wheel and button 8 as the "back" button. Thus, you would need to edit your .xbindkeysrc file accordingly.

    It works, but now my tilt wheel is backwards.

    Can someone explain the options to me ("Buttons", "Emulate3Button", etc.)?

    Reverse the order 4 and 5 or 8 and 7 until you get it right.
    Me likes Kubuntu!

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    Any updated info?

    What about the middle button below the wheel on some MX mice - is there a way to emulate the Mouseware selection of "Keyboard Command" so I can set up a button to "open new page" (control "N") in Mozilla?
