Strange problem with 'imwheel'.


I have a Microsoft Trackball Explorer configured propertly, so that every button works as it should (through XF86config) and now I try assigning ALT+left to one button and ALT+right to another using this .imwheelrc:
Code:
".*"
None, Left, Alt_L|Left
None, Right, Alt_L|Right
Everything works perfectly (like back and forward in Konqueror) but when it comes to Firebird, which used to work well before imwheel changes, now it acts as page down and page up (pressing ALT+left or ALT+right using keyboard still works as it should).
That's very strange but I don't know what to do!

Hi.

Change your ~/.imwheelrc to:

"(null)"
None, Up, Alt_L|Left
None, Down, Alt_L|Right

".*"
None, Up, Alt_L|Left
None, Down, Alt_L|Right

and all should be well.

I did what you proposed but now it acts as page up and down in all programs and when I use them in Konsole it looks like pressing "~".
I think that's not the solution.

Oops. I didn't read your post properly.

your ~/.imwheelrc should read:

"(null)"
None, Left, Alt_L|Left
None, Right, Alt_L|Right

".*"
None, Left, Alt_L|Left
None, Right, Alt_L|Right

See if that works.
