What's my device name; how to setup the 7 button+wheel configuration
Have attached a Kensington Orbit Optical Trackball to my 13.37 OS.
I ran xinput --list --long hoping to find my device's name but got:
Virtual Core Pointer, Virtual Core XTEST Pointer, and ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse. The trackball has 2 physical buttons. Somehow I got xinput --list-props to divulge the buttons: left, middle, right, up, down, horizontal left and horizontal right. But forgot what I used and unable to find it in "history".
What is this device's name???
Note: I ran lspci, lsusb, & lsdev but could not find any device that looked like the trackball, i.e. description or mfgr:devid.
I am looking for a way to get Xinput to give me a middle buttoon, and horizontal and vertical button+ball. Can someone provide this?
BTW it is hooked up to PS/2 because I need all the currently available USB slots.
Isn't it amazing that a company can provide a cd with M$ & RT drivers and in 21 languages in 32 pages say congratulations if U have a problem reboot and try again but can't be bothered to print 7-10 Linux commands about the core of their product? They claim telephone support but could not find a phone number for it. Must have been lost in translation. LOL Their web support didn't look that great either.
Note: I ran lspci, lsusb, lsdev but could not find anything with mfgr:dev number or description.
