    Nice How-to

    This thread has been added to the UDSF wiki.

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    This was posted a while back. The solution comes from a tweak to the xmodmap that MonkeyWrench pointed out.
    To switch the functionality of the top-wheel right and left tilt run the following command in your terminal:

    Code:
    xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 7 6 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20"
    Notice numbers 6 and 7 (tilt events) have switched places. This switches their functionality.
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"
    It compiles! Ship it!

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech MX Revolution in Dapper

    I have figured out how to use the search button as the middle button! Here's how you do it:

    1. Download this compiled version of mvmouse. Special thanks to audax321. It was compiled under Breezy but it works with Edgy just fine (and it should for Dapper as well).

    2. Open the terminal, navigate to where you downloaded mvmouse.tar.gz, and issue these commands:
    Code:
    tar xvzf mvmouse.tar.gz
    sudo mv mvmouse /usr/bin/
    3. Install xbindkeys if you haven't already done so:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install xbindkeys
    4. Make an .xbindkeysrc file in your home directory:
    Code:
    cd ~
    gedit .xbindkeysrc
    5. Paste this into gedit:
    Code:
    "mvmouse +0 +0 2 &"
    c:122
    7. Now, press Alt+F2 and run "xbindkeys".

    8. Finally, add "xbindkeys" to your sessions so it begins on startup (System -> Preferences -> Sessions).

    daou, feel free to add this to the HOWTO (granted that I didn't mess anything up or forget something).

    I'm glad that this worked out for someone else! It's also great that I have finally configured my mouse to work exactly as I want it to.

    Nice work MonkeyWrench! Simple, clear, and it works like a charm. I'll add it to the howto.
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"

    6: Tilt-right = Scroll left
    7: Tilt-left = Scroll right

    Thumb-wheel
    15: Pull = Minimize app
    13: Push = Ctrl + Tab (Which will change active tab in Firefox)
    17: Press = Open Nautilus home folder

    Or am I completely dreaming, when I hope for this type of functionality? Are any of these do-able?

    BTW I'm not using XGL/Compiz.

    Cheers again,

    Perhaps a bit late, but you can look here for possible solutions, especially the double-click functionality: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=316441

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech MX Revolution in Dapper

    Has anyone figured out how to change the middle mouse button function? Under Windows, the logitech drivers let you define it to what you want, but more importantly, they let you disable the flywheel shifting from freescroll to click, so you can just pick one and leave it and assign functions to the button.

    I got the middle mouse button to work!

    Well, *I* didn't discover it, but I did find someone who did!

    There is also a link to a small program that duplicates the logitech driver function of setting the mode of the scroll wheel from free to click, to manual, etc!!!
