    This unfortunately is all greek to me. I don't have a Xmodmap file. I had a Xmodmap.swp file that couldn't be read. Could you add a little more detail to what you did here.

    Re: Madcatz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse drivers needed.

    how to create a .Xmodmap file:

    1. Open up your text editor of choice, gedit (or Accessories > Text editor) is my perfered choice.

    2. in the first line of a new file, paste in:
    Code:
    pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 0 0
    3. Save that file as .Xmodmap (case sensitive) in your home directory, and restart your gnome session (or restart your computer)

    4. On boot, Ubuntu 10.10 will prompt you for which Xmodmap file to load. Select the one you just created, and hit load.


    Issue: I still have the same error after rebooting, help anyone?

    It doesn't solve the problem. Program's are still not clickable.
    (Should point out that the mousemovement is very nice )

    What is the status of this bug being solved?

    For my R.A.T.9 Mouse, the mode button is mapped as 13 14 and 15 so

    pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 0 0 0 16 17 18 19 20 21

    does the trick.

    Re: Madcatz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse drivers needed.

    A slightly more permanent solution appears to append to (or create on a stock installation) your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

    complete instructions can be found here in post #23.

    Re: Madcatz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse drivers needed.

    How can I fix this on Kubuntu. I can't find it anywhere and I'm new with Linux. Please help
    I can't find xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/

    OK
    I've managed to generate xorg.conf in case some noob like myself is trying to do the same:

    1. Ctrl+Alt+F1, login
    2. sudo service kdm stop (gdm for ubuntu, kdm for kubuntu)
    3. sudo Xorg -configure
    4. sudo mv /home/"username"/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    5. sudo service kdm start

    6. open terminal
    7. sudo kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf (kate for kubuntu, gedit for ubuntu)
    8. add (for R.A.T. 5):

    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Mouse Remap"
    MatchProduct "Saitek Cyborg R.A.T.5 Mouse"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 10 11 12 0 0 0"
    EndSection

    save it and restart, then see if it works

    This worked for me with Ubuntu 11.10 from:
    http://fcns.eu/2011/04/cyborg-rat-7-mouse-under-linux/


    Add this section to you xorg.conf file.

    You can do it by typing this in a terminal:
    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    and then pasting the following block of text at the bottom of the file:

    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Mouse Remap"
    MatchProduct "Saitek Cyborg R.A.T.7 Mouse"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 10 11 12 0 0 0"
    EndSection

    Thx, this thread help with debian squeeze (xfce 4) and R.A.T. 7

    My system have no xorg.conf (same "problem" from Chris_28), but just create a .Xmodmap in home directory and insert:
    pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 0 0 0
    and restart xserver/login manager

    Ciao!

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 5 4 12 0 0 0

    Replace the 10 and 11 with 5 and 4 to enable the thumb scroll-wheel for that side to side action.

        MatchProduct          "Saitek Cyborg R.A.T.7 Mouse"
        Option                        "AutoReleaseButtons"     "13 14 15"
        Option                        "Buttons"            "17"
        Option                        "YAxisMapping"          "10 11"
        Option                        "ZAxisMapping"        "4 5 6 7"
        Option                        "Emulate3Buttons"    "no"
        Option                        "Resolution"        "3200"
        Option                        "ButtonMapping"     "1 2 3 4 5 0 0 8 9 7 6 12 0 0 0 16 17"
    EndSection
    Restart and have fun!
