Hi !

Thanks for these configuration informations all
Aussie, where do you find the meaning of the different protocol
I have spent lots of time searching for manuals on my system SuSE 8.2, but they are very unconsistent on the subject...

How do you know explorerPS/2 will handle buttons like that???

Even my linux book of 1000 pages don't mention it except the ZAxisMapping option and only one protocol http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/

Best Regards

        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"

        Option          "Buttons"               "7"
EndSection
From ~/.xsession (the script that runs when I log in to X or run startx):
Code:
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
imwheel -k -b "67"
Note the "-e" part, it won't work without it.

From ~/.imwheelrc (the config file for imwheel which deals with the side buttons):
Code:
".*"
None, Up, Alt_L|Left
None, Down, Alt_L|Right
As a total noob I somehow managed to find, and edi,t the xf86 config but where do I find ~/.imwheelrc to edit it ?

This is all new to me. I do, however know Windows to the max...wish I didnt...... 4 years wasted when I could have been a Linux guru instead.....

Hi..

I'm having some trouble setting the side buttons of the intelli mouse...

I want them to do "Enter(small top button)" and "Close(large inferior button)"

I created the .imwheelrc in my home/user/ directory and it has this:

".*"
None, Up, Alt_L|Left
None, Down, Alt_L|Right


But then I run imwheel 1.0.0pre5 like this...

imwheel -k -b "67"

and the side buttons dont work correctly, the small top one does "page down" and the large inferior one does "page up"

like this its supposed to do "Forward" and "Backward" .. I dont know whats wrong, if you could help me to make them do "enter" and "close" or at least "Forward" and "backward" i would be very grateful, this is my info...

I have in the .Xdefaults

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"

and in /etc/X11/XF86Config

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse[1]"
Option "ButtonNumber" "7"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Name" "Autodetection"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
EndSection



Thats it, so what do I have wrong? ...


*sighs* seems like I have another problem, when kde starts the wheel scroling works weird, does like page up and page down instead of smooth scroling... I fixed this runing

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"

and runing

imwheel -k -b "67"

again....

So I'm wondering if the xmodmap that its in .Xdefaults actually works?
Some made a script in kde/autostart/ doing the xmond and the imwheel...

How do I do this?

Change to the directory where you did "make install" and do "make uninstall" (as root).

One would think so, but pre5 seems to be broken in some way that stops this trick from working.

sorted!!

i've sorted it!!

using pre5 i followed the original instructions to the letter. Had the same problem as everyone else, the scroll wheel worked but the other two buttons did pgup and pgdn.


well, instead of using "imwheel -k -b "67""

i used

imwheel -k -b 6745

and

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7"


christ knows why it works, but it does!!
