Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

'K menu' > 'System' > 'Control Center (YaST)' > 'Hardware' > 'Mouse Model'
I can set mouse model (X11 config). But in
'K menu' > 'Control Center' > 'YaST2 Modules' > 'Hardware' > 'Mouse Model'
I'm able to change the mouse settings but there's no apply button ('Finish'). Anybody know why not?
I've the window maximized and the 'Apply', 'Abort' and 'Finish' buttons are visible for the other entries (except "Joystick") in the Control Center. However, when logging on as root it says 'Loading...' and then 'YaST2 is starting' for all entries except for "Mouse Model" (and "Joystick" which I don't have) for which it just says 'Loading...'.
You could just hardset the mouse's info in the Xorg.conf. I know once I ran thefglrx from ATI, I can no longer edit some of the the mouse settings I used to be able to in that GUI. Perhaps the same is going on for you? If so, just set the mouse up as per the many Intellimouse threads, and the xmodmap to get your sidebuttons working. It is quite easy, change the text in one file, and make a new one and put in one line. I was hesitant too, but it was the only way to get my little side button fellas to work.
Thanks! By editing /etx/x11/xorg.conf and creating /etc/profile.local I was able to get the side buttons to work. However, I haven't found any information on how to set the scrolling speed and change cursor appearance and behavior (e.g. double click instead on single-click for open folders), which was what I was trying to do in the YaST Control Central. Any ideas?
