imwheel microsoft trackball
hi i have a problem ...
i'm trying to get my extra "microsoft trackball explorer" buttons working so i can browse forward and backward with them in mozilla firefox ...
my mouse looks like this
i used this tutorial
the tutorial is meant for an intellimouse i guess and not trackball explorer but in windows they use the same driver
yet these is a problem the guy sets his scroll buttons as 6 & 7 which means offcourse that when he scrolls in xev the mouse wheel op gets recognides as 6 and down as 7
when i click in "xev"
my left button (bottom on the left of the trackball see picture) is 1
my right button (upper on the left of the trackball ) is 3
middle mouse button (scroll wheel inbetween bottom and upper button on the left) is 2
scrolling up is 4
down is 5
and the two buttons on the right don't return 6 & 7 but just 2 & 3 again ....
i did the xmodmap but a bit different because my scroll are 4 & 5
so xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7"
allready had imwheel installed and made the file he said
yet my extra buttons still get recognised as 2 & 3 ( and scroll ISN'T recognised at all , but i'll fix that)
so when browsing , the extra buttons just act as right mouse & middle mouse :(
isn't there anyone out there who thinks knowing what my problem is ?
I know this topic is years old, but I still get referred to it in google, so here's how to fix the problem. I'm using Linux Mint 4.0, but I have every faith this helps in other distros. I have tried every other solution listed at linuxquestions or the Ubuntu forums with no luck.
