Wonderful world of mice


Hi,

i know this is old stuff but i need to know how to get my wonderful mouse to work.


Relax i know how to do the zx mapping and xmodmap

but now i need to know the old question of how to map the thing
and where to put the xmodmap thing so it'll start up when linux boots

i know many ppl say its in the /.xinitrc file but where the hell is it exactly
and where is my .xsession thing

next thing i need to know is how the heck do you do the mapping

There seems to be two way
1. Can i put xmodmap -e 'button 5 = keycode 59' in the xinitrc or .xsession file to allow side button to have back at start up?(will this be a universal effect on all apps?)

2. or should i just get xbindkeys but will that be universal change???

Have a look in your home directory. Either use ls -alh in a shell, or under Konquorer, select View -> Show hidden files. You may need to create either the .xsession or .xinitrc files if they don't exist.

Cheers,
