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.

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.

so i had to reinstall slack 10.2...
i cant believe how extremely annoying it is that my mouse doesnt work by default (only in slack).. and there doesnt seem to be a reliable solution!
i have made this post afew times in the past with previous versions of slack, each time solving it by some random means.
my question is how is YOUR usb/wireless mouse configured with Xorg?
i have tried so, so many combinations in the mouse section with no solution.
the problem is my mouse only goes vertical when i move left/right, and horizontal when i, say, right click!
its a Logitech MX700 wireless optical usb mouse, with 10 buttons.
i have narrowed down the protocol.. im pretty sure i used ExplorerPS/2 in slack 10.0 and 10.1.. so it only makes sense to use again. also, the device i know is /dev/mouse (which links to /dev/input/mice).
so i guess i need the buttons (which _should_ be 10) and the ZAxisMapping.
i have tried xmodmap but it gives an error with whatever options i give it, saying "cannoy find display for " " "
im gonna go now try one of my live-cds and look at the xorg file because my live cds configure the mouse properly automatically.
