    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    Just wondering... if you run xev, what button numbers do the side thumb buttons show? Can you manipulate the xmodmap pointer settings from there to get desired results? It would be nice to have a way to determine exactly what choices are available so we could map out all out buttons.

    I play around with the numbers to get it right as well. There isn't a fix all line in .Xmodmap for everyone. Different people get different results with different mice.

    So, it looks like someone could just install xmodmap and run it, then test the numbers instead of all the rest? Well, do the dpi thing, of course... ??

    DPI is optional, it benefits gamers more than anyone else, AFAIK. I haven't done the DPI in Edgy myself yet.

    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    Thanks for your excellent HOWTO. I did what you've writen and my Logitech wireless trackman works very well. However, I have to change my xorg.conf back to my default one and tolerate the inconvenience because:

    1. I cannot bootup properly if I am not using my trackman (if it is not plugged in or I use another normal mouse). I cannot log into X. I think this is about the udev rule thing.

    2. When I log in with my trackman plugged in and functioned well, I cannot use my touchpad on my IBM T43 laptop. But I can use the touchpad when I use the default xorg.conf settings. And I double checked there is nothing else different except the mouse part, i.e. the touchpad part is exactly the same.

    Any idea how to tackle these two problems? Thanks.

    It's somewhere in this thread, search the thread for SendCoreEvents.

    Thanks for the guide.

    I got the thumb button working on my Mouseman Dual Optical.

    How do I get the wheel (middle) button to minimize the currently in focus window?

    The middle button is button 2 and Alt+F9 will is the keyboard shortcut for minimizing.

    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    Another thank you for this howto, got my MX600 thumb buttons working properly.

    How could I get the tilt mouse to scroll web pages horizontally, or map some other functionality there? I know I need to edit the xbindkeysrc, but what should I look from xev, and what should I put to xbindkeysrc?

    Here is what xev gives me:

    Tilt wheel left:

    Code:
    KeyPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x3600002,
        root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 225638, (166,34), root:(625,812),
        state 0x0, keycode 78 (keysym 0xff14, Scroll_Lock), same_screen YES,
        XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
        XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
        XFilterEvent returns: False
    
    KeyRelease event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x3600002,
        root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 225654, (166,34), root:(625,812),
        state 0x0, keycode 78 (keysym 0xff14, Scroll_Lock), same_screen YES,
        XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    Tilt wheel right:

    Code:
    KeyPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x3600002,
        root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 332396, (173,26), root:(632,804),
        state 0x0, keycode 78 (keysym 0xff14, Scroll_Lock), same_screen YES,
        XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
        XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
        XFilterEvent returns: False

        root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 332404, (173,26), root:(632,804),
        state 0x0, keycode 78 (keysym 0xff14, Scroll_Lock), same_screen YES,
        XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    100% -button:

    Code:
    KeymapNotify event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
        keys:  36  0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0
               0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0
    
    ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x3600002,
        root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 396634, (149,71), root:(608,849),
        state 0x0, button 10, same_screen YES
    
    ButtonRelease event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x3600002,
        root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 396802, (149,71), root:(608,849),
        state 0x0, button 10, same_screen YES
    The zoom +/- -buttons give me nothing.

    So the 100% -button is button 10, but the tilt wheel gives me no button numbers.

    The tilt wheel scrolls fine left and right in OO Spreadsheet.

    in xorg.conf I have:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier     "Configured Mouse"
        Driver         "evdev"
        Option         "CorePointer"
        Option         "Device" "/dev/input/event9"
    EndSection
    In .xbindkeysrc:

    Code:
    "/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]""
      m:0x0 + b:8
    "/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Right]""
      m:0x0 + b:9
    And in /etc/udev/rules.d/19-local.rules:

    Code:
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", SYSFS{../name}=="Logitech USB Receiver", NAME="input/event9"

    Just wanted to give you an update and let you know that I was able to successfully use the guide in Edgy as well. Everything works great!

    EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm using an MX700

    detyabozhye just to let you know I was unable to use the guide for an LX7 in Dapper or Edgy.


    Thanks though.
