Imwheel Fix


This is a preventative post, plz move as needed..

Some of you may have noticed imwheel issues since their newest update. If you followed the pretty standard "How to get side buttons on your mouse working" howtos, you may have noticed that now the side buttons seem to be pgup/pgdn, regardless of what your .imwheelrc file says. The solution is 3 steps:

type 'ps ax' and kill the current imwheel process (if not running -k) with 'kill -9 PROCESSID'.

Make these changes:

.xinitrc:

You probably used to have "imwheel -k -b 67 &" in .xinitrc or .xsessions (never used yet). Simply add two zeros to the beginning to read "imwheel -k -b 0067 &".

.imwheelrc

Currently you may have:

Quote:
".*"
None, Up, Alt_L|Left
None, Down, Alt_L|Right
Change Up/down to Left/Right:

Quote:
".*"
None, Left, Alt_L|Left
None, Right, Alt_L|Right
Restart imwheel with the cmd 'imwheel -k -b 0067' and you should be set!

\m/ \m/

Thank you, thankyouverymuch...

this change seems to make the side buttons move all my windows to the left or right not back and forward?
