    FYI, if you don't want to clutter up your desktop with the script icon, you can put it in your ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts folder and (if you've marked it as executable) it will show up in the scripts submenu if you right-click on the desktop or in a nautilus window.
    Thanks, that is much nicer than keeping it on the desktop. My firefox links still work, if I use the left scroll button to click a link it opens in a new tab. I am not sure what is different. I can post anything you need for comparison.

    Thanks, but I've found I can open a link in a new tab if I "chord" the big left and right buttons. It'll take a little getting used to, but I think it may work better (I would sometimes accidentally open a link in a new tab when I intended to scroll, the way it was before).

    Re: How-to Scrollwheel Effect on Logitech trackball (Marble Mouse)

    I got the scrolling working on the Marble Mouse under 9.10 by running these two commands:

    Code:
    xinput set-int-prop "Logitech USB Trackball" "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 8 1
    xinput set-int-prop "Logitech USB Trackball" "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 8 8
    Mine is the USB version, so it'll probably be slightly different for the PS/2. xinput list will give you a list of devices, so pick yours out and try these two commands.

    Do you have to run them every time you start up X? Or is there a way to get it to always work?

    The code you posted in the beggining helped me make my microsoft mouse work, cause i had no drivers. I find it really exciting what you can do with the xorg.conf file

    Thanks for the help

    After a ton of fiddling in 9.10, this is what finally worked for me:

    Create and edit a new policy for your Marble Mouse.
    Code:
    sudo pico /etc/hal/fdi/policy/marble-mouse.fdi
    Copy and paste this into your editor and save it (ctrl+x, yes, enter).
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <deviceinfo version="0.2">
      <device>
        <match key="info.product" string="Logitech USB Trackball">
          <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">evdev</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.ButtonMapping" type="string">1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheel" type="string">true</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheelButton" type="string">8</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.ZAxisMapping" type="string">4 5</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.Emulate3Buttons" type="string">true</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.Emulate3Timeout" type="string">75</merge>
          <merge key="input.x11_options.GrabDevice" type="string">false</merge>
        </match>
      </device>
    </deviceinfo>
    Restart hal or reboot. Try it out.

    I think the GrabDevice=false option and driver=evdev clauses is what fixed it for me. Let me know if this helps anyone. Thanks and good luck.

    My config, working for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.
    This setup is for right-handed folks, with buttons working as follows:
    Big Left: normal left button
    Small Left: "Button 3", ie does Pasting from clipboard
    Small Right: Hold it and scroll the trackball (vertically only)
    Big Right: normal right button

    Add this to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier  "Marble Mouse"
            MatchProduct "Logitech USB Trackball"
            MatchIsPointer "on"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Driver "evdev"
            Option "ButtonMapping" "1 8 3 4 5 6 7 2 9"
            Option "EmulateWheel" "true"
            Option "EmulateWheelButton" "9"
            Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
            Option "XAxisMapping" "6 7"
            Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"
    EndSection
    Good luck, and keep an eye on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ev/+bug/567068
