Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I followed Ancient's instructions to make my MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 work, and now my forward and back side buttons work but not my scroll wheel (it works as a button properly, but does not scroll, but instead changes words being highlighted erratically). Can anyone suggest what I should do, as I have tried so many things and I have lost a lot of sleep over trying to get this to work over the last couple of days, it's driving me nutso.
Well, I suspect that part of my problem was that I had a second mouse plugged into the PS/2 port of my computer, so I disconnected it. Now scrolling works, but the forward and backward buttons do not work. Please, can someone offer me some insights?
Well , first thing to do in a situation like that is have a good night sleep.
If you will notice , your Mouse section in Xorg.conf is different. What seems to me more important is the line:
Option "Buttons" "4 5"
- you are specifying 2 (2!) Number of Buttons. either the mouse has 4 buttons or 5 .
No Vendor ? ...
Zaxis is for the ScrollWheel
Did you edit the file manually ? you have to start IMO with the best fitting SAX2 definition , and THAN tweak
I am not sure yet, but it seems like I might have it working now. I will post back when I know for sure that all of the parameters are right after rebooting, but right now I am doing all kinds of installs.
BTW: How does one enable forward and backward mouse browsing in Konqueror?
Must be Enlightment (vs KDE 3.5a here)..
But also, its a different mouse, so I would first get the definitons as close to reality.
The buttons are mapped differently in the Integer string. Since there are 2 side buttons, one must try to position them properly.
If Xmodmap complains than oblige by using 7 (for the model u defined) and than reposition the side buttons
Since there isn't , apparently, a humanly decipherable / graphical universal app to set the functions/buttons properly, we must do with Trial and Error.
basically i started this thread just to inform Linux community, by Google, of my solution. I think a global DB, set by Googling Google results (etc) is a great idea. especially if it can be interfaced to user desktop/system configurator.
