emerged xfce, beryl, and XGL... mouse buttons no longer work
 
Hey everyone,

I followed the gentoo-wiki guide for running xfce, beryl, and XGL ... and after I did, and I boot in to FVWM with startx, my mouse buttons no longer work properly. I have an MX510 so I went to the gentoo-wiki and it told me to run:
Code:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 3 2 4 5 8 9 6 7 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32"
So i had put that in .xinitrc and all was going fine until I emerged all of these packages.

Now I get:
Code:

gnychis@monster ~ $ xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 3 2 4 5 8 9 6 7 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32"
Warning: Only changing the first 32 of 10 buttons.

This swaps my right button and middle button, and my side buttons no longer work.

any ideas?

Thanks!
George

this could be part of the problem, when starting X:
Code:

(EE) evdev brain: Unable to initialize inotify, using fallback. (errno: 38)
(EE) evdev brain: Unable to initialize inotify, using fallback. (errno: 38)
(EE) evdev brain: Unable to NONBLOCK inotify, using fallback. (errno: 9)

I think gentoo-wiki said to upgrade evdev, which may have caused this

ok so i managed to get rid of those errors by building in inotify into the kernel... however the mouse problem did not go away :(

any ideas? I checked the beryl/xgl wiki and i don't see anything that would have affected this... it looks like it never had to update evdev or anything

okay after talking to myself for a little bit... i found it in the wiki :)

xorg must have updated itself to 7.1 and i must not have noticed...

the buttons must be remapped according to the wiki:
Code:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10"
