evdev, lost WM mouse click windows [solved]


Hi all! I have recently upgraded my older FC2 installation to ubuntu 5.10.

took a little getting used to, but finally figured a few frustrating things out. however, there has been a problem, and i am hoping someone can help...

i am using a logitech g7 mouse, and wanted to take advantage of the extra buttons on the mouse, so i am using the evdev protocol in my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "mouse0"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "Protocol"      "evdev"
        Option          "Dev Name"      "Logitech USB Gaming Mouse"
        Option          "Dev Phys"      "usb-*/input0"
        Option          "Buttons"       "8"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"  "4 5 7 6"
EndSection
So I managed to get the extra buttons working great! the horizontal scrolling on the mouse will now move firefox back and forward in the history.

BUT, I have lost the ability to call up the xfce menus from either middle or right clicking on the desktop!

any ideas on how to fix this? is there a mapping that I am missing somewhere?

tia

Well, I hunted more and more and finally found my answer over at http://forum.xfce.org/.

Long story short, I didn't have xfdesktop running for some reason when my session started.
