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

    Is there any way to switch the direction of the scroll wheel tilt function: at the moment, tilting right has the 'back' function in Firefox and Opera, which is counter-intuitive?

    Um, you'd have to play around with Xmodmap for that.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately that mouse died soon after.

    However I found a cheap wireless mouse with side buttons. I can confirm that the instruction on page 1 (Section 2: Side buttons and Nautilus, Epiphany, Konqueror, etc (Optional)) also work for the Trust Wireless Optical Mouse MI-4910D, although I had to change the button numbers from 6 & 7 to 8 & 9.

    Many thanks to detyabozhye.

    EndSection
    and the serverlayout section for the mouse should look like this (It cannot be corepointer!):
    Code:
            Inputdevice     "Configured Mouse" "SendCoreEvents"

    I'm a new Gutsy user, and have an MX 700 (from the MX Duo set - apparently not quite the same as the standalone MX 700). I've edited xorg.conf per these instructions, but it doesn't quite work for me. Running xev, I find that some of the mice buttons are mapped to the same number (right mouse button is the same as upper thumb button).

    Can you help me? For an OS that appears in all other ways to be generally easier than Windows to set up, the more complex, terminal based steps that are required to get a common mouse working fully is just unbelievable!


    [EDIT] Starting up Ubuntu this morning the problem seems to have been resolved. Hopefully this was just a false alarm, and things will continue to work as expected. [/EDIT]

    Yeah, Xorg is still a little silly when it comes to configuration, IMHO. But that should be fixed in Xorg 7.3 or 7.4 I believe

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

    I recently bought the new MX620, and the evdev autoconfiguration worked perfectly for me.
    I only had to add 2 more lines in xorg.conf, because in /proc/bus/input/devices there were 2 devices with the same name; so I told evdev which one to configure:
    Code:
    Option		"Dev Phys"	"usb-*/input1"
    Option		"Device"	"/dev/input/event2"
    Now I'm searching for a software that can enable my mouse's 800cpi resolution... lomoco doesn't support it yet. I'm contacting lomoco's mailing list looking for support
    Stay tuned

    Thanks a lot detyabozhye !
    Wow...what a thread. I admit to not having read all 60 or so pages of it.

    I got an LX7 cordless mouse as a gift and would really like to use it. From the above post, I took encouragement as this poster is using 7.10, the same as me. But when I look at the date of the post, it could not have been 7.10, most likely 6.06 which was the most current at that time.

    Question: Anything about 7.10 that makes it incompatible with the Logitech LX7?

    Thanks!

    This actually works on my Evoluent mouse too :]
    I had to use this to get my MX620 working, Using the long method would do something weird and my nvidia driver would stop functioning. Also I'm using Gutsy Gibbon this was my only way to make it work, or at least the easiest. Thanks

    Finally got around to installing the LX7 wireless mouse in 7.10.

    First, I installed it in XP. No problems. Other than having to download a 53Mb driver, it went off without a hitch.

    So, I decided to try to make it work with ubuntu 7.10. Shut down XP and booted up into ubuntu, and....surprise, it works pretty darn well without doing anything at all. All the buttons and the wheel are functional, however the two little buttons don't function as page forward/back as they do in XP. The left small button functions as 'open in a new tab' in Firefox; the right small button functions as right click.

    So, I have a 5 button mouse that has left click, two right clicks, an open in new tab, and the wheel without doing anything at all.

    I think I'm pretty happy with it as is, so I might not try to change anything unless it becomes a limitation sometime in the future.
