I know you have seen problems like this, I've been reading a lot of threads about, but can't get it to work.
My wireless USB Mouse (unknown Mark) that I bought on eBay get detected by Ubuntu 8.10, but seems to be working backwards. I mean, with the inverted axis. I know there is a way to make it get inverted again, adding the right code on xorg.conf. I tryed SO MANY possible ways to do it, but I can't. Also I tested the mouse on Windows (XP and Vista) and works the same (backwards).
Here's the lines on my xorg.conf
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse1"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "InvX" "on"
Option "InvY" "on"
I know there is more than "inverting the axis", but that was the last thing i tryed.
Also, I think it doesn't work with the "mice" driver, but with "mouse1", because I watched how this adds on "/dev/input" when I plug and unplug the usb receptor.
PLEASE! any help?
