I have Slackware 10.0 and i want to use my wireless MX 700 Logitech. When i plug it in though i guess it doesn't even find the mouse because i cant move the pointer on the screen. And while im posting where is the config file that i need to edit to get the scroll buttons to work and what is it called.
Shamelessly stolen from another forum
1) Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf resp. /etc/X11/XF86Config
The relevant section is InputDevice
7 button bouse (e.g. MX Series):
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
Option "Name" "Logitech MX 700"
Do not change your "Identifier," that is specific to your configuration. You should make sure you have "Buttons" "ZAxisMapping" and "Protocol" all set to the above values. IMPS/2 may work also, but even for "non-explorer" intellimice, ExplorerPS/2 should work fine. This is for USB mice also, PS/2 is just part of the name, it does not mean that you have a PS/2 mouse. There are seven buttons on what appear to be five-button mice: left button, right button, middle button (push down on scroll wheel), scroll up, scroll down, side button 1, side button 2.
Hope that works...
