What am I doing wrong ? I've tried everything that you've been talking here, but still my mouse's side buttons and wheel aren't working without writing the commands xmodmap and imwheel manually. I think it must be somthing simple, but I just can't find out what it could be.

For the life of me, I cant figgure it out. Why dont they add support in apps for buttons 6 and 7? :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
Then i could access it directly from the program. I realize that Xfree is based on the archaic X protocal that calls for 3 buttons, but come on! These things have been out for several years, its not some new passing fad. If Konq and Moz etc. would just nativly support unlimited (ok, mabey like 10 is resonable) buttons life would be much easier. I KNOW this is possable b/c fvwm supports unlimited (afaik) buttons natively.

Just thought I'd pass along a success story.

System:
    -x11-base/xfree: 4.3.0-r3
    -gnome-base/gnome: 2.4
    -Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.0A USB and PS/2 Compatible


The easiest way I've found is to do the following:

Code:

/etc/X11/XF86Config:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/usbmouse"
    Option "Buttons"    "7"
    Option "ZAxisMapping"       "6 7"                                                                                                                           
    Option "Resolution" "1200"                                                                                                                                   
EndSection

/etc/X11/Xmodmap (you'll probably have to create this):
pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5


This sets up mapping system wide.

Hope it helps anyone who's still stuck.

Anyone using a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0?

I was using an Intellimouse, and that worked fine. I used the middle button (ie, clicking the wheel) in Galeon to open a link in a new tab. The Wireless Optical Mouse works fine too, but the middle button doesn't always work. One difference between the two mice is that the original Intellimouse has detents on the wheel whereas the Optical Mouse doesn't: it is a smooth rolling action.

It seems to me that the wheel can sometimes be in a position where, for some reason, X doesn't recognise the middle button down event (although xev seems to see them OK). Hmm, thought just occurs to me: this mouse has the tilting wheel, so perhaps I'm inadvertently tilting the wheel when I click. Has anyone configured a tilting wheel to work under X?

I just came home the other day with the "Microsoft Optical Wireless Desktop Elite" which includes a fancy keyboard and mouse.

I have xbindkeys in use for all the special keyboard keys and that works like a charm. I am however having trouble getting the two extra buttons (Nine total!) working on the mouse.

7 buttons work fine, but when I try to add in the other two I get confused very quickly!

In my XF86Config-4 file I have total buttons set to 9 and the z axis mapping set to 8 9. Then for xmodmap I have pointer 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7 and -b 89 on imwheel.

This doesn't work of course :-p. The wheel seems to be hilighting text or something lol, and the 2 new buttons are not doing anything. The back/forward buttons are scrolling up and down. Back goes up and forward goes down.

Trying to figure this out is making my head spin.

Also while I am here....I would like to bind two keyboard keys to do back/forward in the browser. So I need to bind a key with xbindkeys to Alt L and Alt R. Anyone aware of a way to do something like this?

Thank you for any help here.

Schizoid:

Run xev from the terminal and go through, pressing all your buttons, look for ButtonRelease events and see what "button #" it says for each one.

This is before you've done any xmodmap stuff.

Then ZAxisMapping should be set to whatever buttons your scroll wheel actually is before xmodmap has changed things.

Now, if your scroll buttons are actually (before xmodmap) something other than 4 and 5 (like 8 and 9 for instance), you need to use xmodmap to make them 4 and 5:
Code:
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 8 9 6 7 4 5"

Or something to that effect, basically you want to assign 8 to 4 and 9 to 5, which are the buttons most applications look to for scrolling input.

Now in a completely separate process, you use imwheel to make special buttons like back and forward work, by having imwheel handle buttons 6,7,8,9 which are actual buttons 6,7,4,5.

Remember that the xmodmap command above has CHANGED what numbers correspond to what buttons, so:
Code:
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 8 9 6 7 4 5" (Change)
            pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9  (After Change)
                      | | | | | | | | |
               Left <-+ | | | | | | | |
                        | | | | | | | |
               Middle <-+ | | | | | | |
                          | | | | | | |
                  Right <-+ | | | | | |
                            | | | | | |
                Scroll Up <-+ | | | | |
                              | | | | |
                Scroll Down <-+ | | | |
                                | | | |
                      Special <-+-+-+-+


And also remember that imwheel and the button numbers you use with it are entirely separate from scrolling or what is in ZAxisMapping.

Basically these are the things that have helped me understand how it all works.

This is great info. Simply edited my xf86config and added the line to my ~/.xinitrc and BOOM! mouse4 and mouse5 are now availbel to me. Great in Jedi Academy for swicthing force powers.

Ok this is a bit odd.

Here is my mouse setup:

Code:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/usbmouse"
    Option "Buttons" "9"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
    Option "Resolution" "200"
EndSection


Now I have commented out the xmodmap and imwheel lines in my xfce init file and when I run xev I get:
Wheel up = 6
Wheel down = 7
Back button = 4
Forward button = 5

The two extra buttons on my new mouse are used by pushing the scroll wheel side to side. So you can push it left to scroll left, right for right.

When I push them in xev I get what looks like a keyboard button press.

Code:

KeyPress event, serial 27, synthetic NO, window 0x1200001,
     root 0x40, subw 0x0, time 246211, (102,111), root:(612,130),
     state 0x00, keycode 196 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
     XLookupString gives 0 bytes: ""


I get the same keycode when I do it left & right too.

Now I use xbindkeys to bind all those crazy keys on my keyboard and I suppose if it really thinks this is a keyboard key I can bind it with xbindkeys. But it seems to be one one key??

A bit confusing!

I am going to turn imwheel back on now before I kill myself trying to use the scroll wheel.

Thank you for your help, any idea what is going on here?

I don't know what I have done wrong here but this is the drill. I get everything vorking smoothly but both side buttons on the Intellimouse Explorer 3 scroll the webpage upwards!??
Everything is set up acording to the tips so it skould work.
I even had it working before my hardisk went to heaven and I had to reinstall.
Any tips here?

It took me a while to figure this out...

For those of us who prefer KDE, the xinitrc file is found in /etc/X11/xinit

Slowly but surely, i'm getting the hang of this.

Here are all my settings in case this helps anyone else out. (I have a Dell 8200 Inspiron with a MS Intellimouse USB explorer and the mouse, mousewheel, side buttons, touchpad and pointer all work all the time.)

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

Code:

#!/bin/sh
# $Xorg: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.3 2000/08/17 19:54:30 cpqbld Exp $

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
xinitdir=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit
sysresources=$xinitdir/.Xresources
sysmodmap=$xinitdir/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
    xrdb -merge $sysresources
fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
    xrdb -merge $userresources
fi

if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $usermodmap
fi


#Scroll wheel Stuff
exec imwheel -k -b "67" &




# First try ~/.xinitrc
if [ -f "$HOME/.xinitrc" ]; then
        XINITRC="$HOME/.xinitrc"
        exec /bin/sh "$HOME/.xinitrc"
# If not present, try the system default
elif [ -n "`/etc/X11/chooser.sh`" ]; then
        exec "`/etc/X11/chooser.sh`"
# Failsafe
else
        # start some nice programs
        twm &
        xclock -geometry 50x50-1+1 &
        xterm -geometry 80x50+494+51 &
        xterm -geometry 80x20+494-0 &
        exec xterm -geometry 80x66+0+0 -name login
fi



/etc/X11/Xmodmap

Code:

pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5


/etc/X11/XF86Config

sorta off topic here - buti also have an inspiron 8200, and was wondering if you have scrolling or any touchpad special stuff working?

i'm told the new synaptics driver has some alps support, but haven't heard from anyone that's tried it yet

I never used the "special" touchpad stuff. I just want it to move the mouse and have the buttons work, which they do. (Altho tapping the pad does do a left-click)

They way I have it now, the touchpad works, the pointer stick works and the USB mouse all work at the same time and I can hotplug and unplug the mouse and it works all the time, which is what I was after. Plus I got the scrollwheel on the mouse working and the back/forward side mouse buttons are working.

If you're interested, drop me a PM and I'll send you copies of my config files.

hmm, strange, but when I add it to my /etc/X11/Sessions/Gnome file, it doesn't work.

I don't think I am adding it correctly, exactly what is it suppose to look like inside the script.

i had problems with imwheel unless i padded it with zeroes, so here's my line from xinitrc:
Code:
imwheel -k -b 000067


when you do 000067 the 'symbols' as i call them for the buttons are "Thumb1" and "Thumb2" making it a little more intuitive, as well as explicitly disabling imwheel's capturing of other button events (at least is my understanding)

i'm still using
Code:
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5" &
in my xinitrc however ...

I can't for the life of me get it to work automatically at boot. I can get my mousewheel working and my side buttons going front and back in Mozilla, but I have to type in the commands manually everytime I boot up. I've tried edting /etc/X11/Sessions/kde-3.2.2 as follows:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
imwheel -k -b "67"
/usr/kde/3.2/bin/startkde


I've added exec in front of the commands, but nothing seems to work. When I boot my mousewheel just highlights text and my side buttons scroll until I type those commands in the console.

I even tried editing my /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc as someone else reccomended, but that doesnt work either. I'm still new to Gentoo/Linux, so if anyone can please tell me how the hell to get those commands to be passed automatically at boot i would REALLY appreciate it.

I'm having trouble getting an external usb mouse to work on a laptop. The touchpad is running fine, xfree config is identical to the one here apart from the print out below: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=105524

I also have an MS Explorer mouse that I've been using on my stationary computer and I've copied the config and put it in XF86Config like so:

The mouse doesn't work at all in X. I have a bunch of usb modules compiled and use hotplug to load them, dmesg shows no errors my mouse is recognized by model. I also have both the mouse and the touchpad working with gpm, setting proto to imps2 and device to /dev/usbmouse.

If someone is using an external usb mouse, maybe you could show me your config?

maybe i missed it, but how do you set the side buttons to whatever you want?
when i had windows i liked to set them to minimize and close
in gentoo, i think id like to try putting one to close and one to switch workspaces

I've seen a couple of questions regarding /etc/X11/Xmodmap in this thread. However, I've not seen anyone answer the question. With Gnome and GDM this seems to be non-functional.

I've been messing with this both for keyboard and mouse configuration. Although it is probably possible to make it work with some local (user) configuration, I would like to use the system-wide approach.

Does anyone have an explanation of why Gnome does not use /etc/X11/Xmodmap anymore. I have verified that it is indeed loaded from the gdm startup scripts, but there must be something loaded in the users profile, that disables this.. Hmm..

I guess it can be found somewhere in /etc/skel as well, since I have just installed the machine.

Update: Hmm. It seems the pointer-remapping works fine from /etc/X11/Xmodmap, but keyboard remappings do not. I guess this is offtopic then.

Its not working..... at least the xmodmap is not. I dont know why, but imwheel seems to be working.

I'using Gentoo Linux 2.6.7-gentoo-r11 with Xorg and KDE 3.2.2.

Please say me in which file i gotta write what stuff. I tried every file you guys recommended and is existent in my system. I even created some of the files but it still doesn't work :(
When I type that stuff in manually wheel works.


EDIT:
I just realized that the wheel works on the KDE-Desktop. I am able to switch between the work-screens (Arbeitsfläche) by scrolling the wheel. However, the wheel still does not work in applications like Firefox or Konqueror.

Here is something odd... I've got an Intelliemouse exploder and have set it up like this thread taks and it's worked fine for ages, including thumb buttons.

I've recently moved to kernel version 2.6.7-gentoo-r11 from running 2.4 kernel versions. Now the mouse works great BUT it's sooooo slow, move it left right up down and it's like the accel is way down, the same for all WM's fluxbox, KDE etc...

Has anyone had this happen. I put psmouse_resolution=200 into my grub config file but when the kernel boot's it disregards that command.

Regards
Tim

Anyone using a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0?

I was using an Intellimouse, and that worked fine. I used the middle button (ie, clicking the wheel) in Galeon to open a link in a new tab. The Wireless Optical Mouse works fine too, but the middle button doesn't always work. One difference between the two mice is that the original Intellimouse has detents on the wheel whereas the Optical Mouse doesn't: it is a smooth rolling action.

It seems to me that the wheel can sometimes be in a position where, for some reason, X doesn't recognise the middle button down event (although xev seems to see them OK). Hmm, thought just occurs to me: this mouse has the tilting wheel, so perhaps I'm inadvertently tilting the wheel when I click. Has anyone configured a tilting wheel to work under X?

Ok followed alll the directions as supplied previoulsy in this forum even went so far as to try the imwheel option...
The scroll will only work with "4 5" set refuses to work if I set it as "6 7" . Havent tried using the extra buttons yet.


Here's my Xorg:
Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

# Option "Resolution" "100"
