Well...Yeah, xev won't register any events unless they get defined with xmodmap (AIUI). By default, it probably only sees 7 buttons, and the thumb buttons are like 8 and 9.

I'd like to show everyone a link that I found along time ago, and didn't notice this thread to post it.

Here is a working tutorial, explaining the proess and proper use of evdev (and getting the "Microsoft-IntelliMouse-Explorer-2.0" tilt wheel to work.

Your welcome. (posted this thread with the very mouse)

very nice and complete.. thanks but i've already removed the MS mouse for a 2 button + standard scroll wheel trackball.. works better since i don't want/have space for 2 mouse pads on my desk (have never had success with my switchbox and changing keyboard/mouse... i'll have to find a svga/usb/usb one for 4 computers maybe that'll work (lotsa perceived hotplugging on the computers tho :()

Yay! Disregard my last post! It seems that you should use USB for your mouse instead of PS/2. So I relocated my USB Bluetooth adapter to my USB hub and moved my mouse to the USB port.


Hmmmm! The ONLY way I can connect my Comfort edition so it works, at the moment, is via PS/2 (waiting for drivers that will work on the MS receiver V3.0 USB)

I tried it anyway, and, viola!, it worked, straight up, no delays. The only diff between mine and Kenyons setup is the Phys address and the map order (4 5 7 6).
