Wireless mouse oddness
I felt adventurous and hooked my wireless mouse up to my machine. In the normal ps/2 mode it works great. Right and left mouse buttons work just fine. The mouse has a wheel on it, and I thought it would be a nice feature to utilize. A hacking we will go...
Previously I had this mouse hooked up to my other PC, running RH9, and it worked great over there. Wheel worked like you'd think it should. However, over here on this machine, running SuSE 8.2 Pro, it doesn't work right at all.
I dug in the the XF86Config on both machines to see the differences. The only thing that I could find was the RH9 box had an option for ZAxisMapping. I copied this over to my other machine.
Now the mouse block looks like this in the XF86Config:
Option "ButtonNumber" "5"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Name" "Autodetection"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
If I change the Protocol to IMPS/2 the mouse begins to not act like a mouse at all. Random windows start opening, menus start flying around.
imwheel is installed and started.
I've tried changing the xmodmap with 'xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5"'. Still stuck with a useless feature of this mouse.
What file do I need to hack or process do I need to start?
