    OK, I think I got it working. I changed the device and protocol to what was in the manual and it looks like it works.

    One more quick question, and I'm not sure if this is related to btnx, but can I change how many lines one click of the scroll wheel scrolls? Right now, it's moving too slow for my tastes (I think in OSX, I have it configured for 10 lines or something). Thanks

    I don't know if it's possible to do this in the window managers separately. You could probably double the speed with btnx by detecting the mouse wheel up and down scrolls. Then tell btnx to send the keycodes REL_WHEELFORWARD and REL_WHEELBACK for the scrolls.
    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!

    New btnx-0.3.2 and btnx-config-0.2.1 integrate revoco. You will find a new tab at the top of btnx-config which opens the settings window. MX Revolution users will find this handy (especially if you want to use the mouse wheel-press as a button).

    The online documentation does not include help for the revoco settings. However, the manual available from the Help button in btnx-config has an up to date manual that describes the settings. Its in the section marked "Configuring revoco".

    Enjoy!

    Thanks it works now (great in Gutsy!). Though I have a VX Revolution. Same as an MX but the laptop version (so it's smaller lol).

    Well, this makes the thumb buttons send whatever other codes I map to 2 and 3, but it makes the actual right and middle click buttons send them as well, meaning I can no longer right or middle click at all.

    Edit: I actually read the rest of the replies, and after changing the Device and Protocol lines it now works for me as well. Thanks, all!


    Further Edit: One more bug report. When enabling the new revoco functionality (which is awesome, by the way), it appears that automatic mode goes away if I take the mouse out of range of the receiver. I need to restart btnx to get it back.

    btnx only makes temporary changes to the wheel of the MX Revolution, which are reverted during boot (and apparently when the mouse is out of range). It's a matter of changing one byte to make the changes persist, but I was reluctant to do this in case it causes problems for users.

    I will think about changing the setting in the next release.

    I attached a start up script with a lot of extra stuff commented out (including a lot of the logging features).

    Try it by copying the file in the archive into /etc/init.d/btnx (replacing the old script). Then, make sure it is executable with chmod.

    Then you can test it with /etc/init.d/btnx start | stop | restart

    Tell me what happens.
