7 Button Mouse Functions
This isnt really a problem its more of a config id like to have.
I have installed Ubunty (Hoary) with the 2.6.10 kernel just compiled on my compaq armada m700 laptop, and I was configuring my microsoft intellipoint mouse, one of those optical usb mouses with 7 buttons on them. I got the scrolling wheel configured for going up and down nicely (had a problem at first because it came out inverted), I also got the two extra buttons on the side to change between workspaces (nifty thing took me two hours to do) and I wanted the middle button (meaning the press on the scroll wheel) to open the terminal but I have no idea how to call on to that mouse action. Im using imwheel for all this but in it i only found how to modify these four buttons, i have no idea how the middle button is called, i tried calling it button2 and button3 but didnt work; i know my linux detects it as a different button because whenever I press on it it pops up a strange menu that no other button pops up but id rather have the terminal pop up. Also I have no idea how to configure the threshold for the scrolling wheel, I got it to scroll 4 lines each click either up or down but id like for it to detect when i scroll fast so that it can scroll more lines at a time, I read somewhere that this could be done with the imwheel but i didnt really understood how or where to put such a script. Im a newbie here so lately ive just been playing arround to learn more about linux.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
