Basically each button does 2 different things. How can I fix this??? Also, when I enter:

    sudo gedit etc/X11/xorg.conf

    It is completely empty, no text or anything. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
    I'm no expert on this, but as near as I can tell, the "Forward" and "Back" functions are purely a Firefox deal.

    Apparently the developers of Firefox thought they should set up "Forward" and "Back" mouse buttons automatically, which makes some sense for people who don't want to futz around with settings much and for people who aren't terribly fixed on a certain button setup. But as you have noticed, it's not necessarily right for everybody.

    Possible options include: A) use Seamonkey instead of Firefox -- Seamonkey doesn't set up your mouse buttons automatically, nor does it override your button settings; B) change your window focus away from Firefox before you hit those buttons; C) figure out how to edit your chrome to disable the automatic "Forward" and "Back" mouse button function.

    Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Great guide! thanks
    I'm only having one "issue":
    I'm using a Mx revolution and i want the click of the thumb wheel to initialize "Scale" (Default compiz component, similar to mac os's Expose), the thing is that when i click it shows all my windows scaled properly, but cant choose one, because btnx sends multiple events (since i'm still pressing down the button) and it goes away.
    I don't know if i'm being clear, or if i this is the correct place to post.
    I've tried everything i could think of, and any help would be much appreciated.

    I am having the exact same issue as Dipdip, but I don't / didn't in Windows.
    When running Windows I set in "Logitech Setpoint" for my back button to act as a different key and in Firefox it worked fine, no back button action - so I am not so sure it is a built in Firefox feature?

    I am also having an issue with some other keys I have set on my mouse and the setting "Force immediate button release", which doesn't seem to do anything.

    Many thanks,

    Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Just to post that btnx works for the following mouse as well:

    Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 4000

    Left
    Right
    ScrollWheel-up
    ScrollWheel-down
    TiltWheel-Left *
    TiltWheel-Right *
    Side Button

    This is so cool! The TiltWheel button for the Microsoft mouse cannot be configured for other key strokes in Microsoft Windows XP, but can be done with btnx in ubuntu!!

    Re: btnx: Send keyboard and mouse combination events with mouse buttons

    Hi,

    I'm experiencing a somewhat strange problem.
    btnx correctly identifies my mouse (Logitech LX3) and all its buttons, including the horizontal scroll buttons. Since Ubuntu doesn't recognize my horizontal scroll buttons I decided to map them using btnx-config. Unfortunately the desired action isn't carried out whenever I use either of the scroll buttons - I also tried assigning a command to the buttons instead of keystrokes. I made sure that only my scroll buttons were enabled and nothing else.

    Strangely, it turns out that each time I push one of the assigned buttons (my scroll buttons in this case), a new btnx process is spawned. It took me a while to figure out what was happening by which stage I had over 50 btnx processes running.

    I'm using the latest version of btnx available through the repo and am on Hardy.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is btnx removed from the repositories? Apt get finds nothing, and neither does a search at Ubuntu Packages.

    Nevermind, I should read the entire first post first...

    hi,

    Did someone get BTNX compile under intrepid alpha 4? I get errors at compiling (uinpit.c errors)



    And big thanks to Olli for this great piece of software

    I emailed Ollie personally, and he said fixing btnx for intrepid is not on top of his priority list.

    Does someone know of a workaround for intrepid, I really miss zooming in with my wireless mouse.

    btw, does someone know how to make the "mouse" driver to list more than 9 buttons? this driver seems to work alot better in intrepid, it just exports too few buttons to programs like compiz.
