All I want is too simply have more than one mouse button for my gnome desktop. :-( So I emerged mouseemu, and after i start /etc/init.d/mouseemu.init.gentoo my x cursor won't budge from the touchpad. Any ideas on what I'm being a doofus about?

Thanks!!
Mike

See the "I only have one mouse-button. How can I make use of the second and third one, as ctrl-button does not work?" section in the PPC faq: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml.

Feel free to ask if you have any further questions.

Do you have uinput support in your kernel?

What does your /var/log/mouseemu.log says? it should end with

Trying to open /dev/uinput... ok.
(Your uinput device may be elsewhere, like /dev/input/uinput, but mouseemu should find it automatically)

Okay so I did the steps in the 1 button mouse faq that was suggested *with mouseemu turned off* but no dice. When i cat /proc/sys/dev/mouse_button_emulation = 1, and button2 and button3 have the values set that I put into /etc/sysctl.conf. I do have uinput support compiled into the kernel, and as for my mouseemu log, I get this :

mouseemu 0.12 (C) Colin Leroy <colin@colino.net>
using (0+100) as middle button, (0 + 126) as right button, (56) as scroll
using /dev/uinput.
Trying to open /dev/uinput... ok.
cleaning...


Any suggestions?

Thanks!

So I am using udev *figured that might be helpful*. Does anyone using udev have mouseemu working? I went from kernel 2.6.8.1 to 2.6.9 to see if it would help but no dice. I want to right click! :(

Okay, first off, you do *not* need mouseemu if all you want is a right click. Setting it up with 2+3 button emulation is easier. Now, make sure that you've followed all of the directions in that FAQ and rebooted. Do you have all of the correct kernel options set? Which mouse device is your X configuration pointing to?

I know I don't need mouseemu, but since the PPC Faq page instructions didn't work I tried that. Two strike outs it seems. In the kernel I do have 2+3 mouse button emulation, and I have followed the the PPC Faq step by step. Since I'm using udev, my xorg config is using /dev/input/mouse1.

In the kernel, are there any options required besides 2+3 emulation?

The only kernel options required are the ones listed in the FAQ, see the section above the mouse button configuration. You should point your xorg mouse configuration to /dev/input/mice.

What kind of mouse are you using?
What keys did you set the mousebuttons to?

I'm just using the touchpad on my ibook. I set my middle button to 56 *alt - option button* and my right button to 125 *left side apple button*. I'll try setting my mouse to /dev/input/mice to see what difference that makes.
