    Thanks

    Removing the udev rules won't autimatically make it work. If you want, you can try to use the event instead of creating a udev rule.

    Try:
    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    And rememer the highlighted number from here:
    Code:
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=046d Product=c025 Version=1800
    N: Name="Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-1/input0
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input0
    H: Handlers=mouse0 event0 ts0
    B: EV=7
    B: KEY=ff0000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
    B: REL=103
    
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=049f Product=000e Version=0100
    N: Name="Compaq Compaq Internet Keyboard"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-2/input0
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input1
    H: Handlers=kbd event1
    B: EV=120003
    B: KEY=10000 7 ff87207a c14057ff febeffdf ffefffff ffffffff fffffffe
    B: LED=7fff
    
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=049f Product=000e Version=0100
    N: Name="Compaq Compaq Internet Keyboard"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-2/input1
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input2
    H: Handlers=kbd event2
    B: EV=3
    B: KEY=20000 87a 5000d000 1e0000 0 0 0
    
    I: Bus=0010 Vendor=001f Product=0001 Version=0100
    N: Name="PC Speaker"
    P: Phys=isa0061/input0
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input3
    H: Handlers=kbd event3
    B: EV=40001
    B: SND=6
    And change your Device option in xorg.conf to:
    Code:
           Option          "Device"        "/dev/input/event0"
    However, I use udev because yesterday my event number for the mouse was 1, today it's 0. It changes on my system, so I can't recommend it.

    Install these two packages and any dependencies they have via Synaptic:
    Code:
    libx11-dev
    x11proto-xext-dev

    Re: HOWTO Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06 32 bit, based on endy's HOWTO

    I went through the instructions, and now I can use the back and forward keys on my MX500 in Nautilus and Firefox, so that is fine and good.

    However, I now have a weird problem. It seems that right-click has been remapped onto my middle mouse button, so when I click that, the right-click menu comes up, and the right-click button doesn't seem to do anything anymore. How can I fix this?

    I have mx518 and I'm using the newest evdev driver. I couldn't get it to work with the old driver + xmodmap for some reason. What I had to do is create a SYMLINK to the /dev/input/eventX where X is the number that gets assigned to the mouse. The only name that the new evdev driver would work with was input/eventX where X is a number (even though udev would create them and I was able to use them with "cat /dev/mx518" for example.)
    So I noticed that my mouse would always get either input/event1 or input/event3 and also that input/event0 was not used by anything I cared for. So I've created following udev rule:
    Code:
    KERNEL=="event[13]", SYSFS{../name}=="Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse", SYMLINK="input/event0"
    So now /dev/input/event0 always points at the correct event # for my mouse.

    Next I pointed xorg.conf to /dev/input/event0 and it works like a charm now. Even the side buttons get recognized w/o using xmodmap.

    Hope that helps someone.

    Thanks, but it causes my machine to freeze! Rebooted in Single User Mode and found:
    Code:
    zao@amd:~$ tail /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    (II) evdev brain: Rescanning devices (2).
    No core pointer
    
    Fatal server error:

    My xorg.conf:

            Option          "CorePointer"
            Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/g5"

    My /etc/udev/rules.d/19-local.rules:
    Code:

    All ideas are welcome

    Try switching "2" and "3" places in .Xmodmap
