pico your xorg.conf file (look in /etc)

under the mouse section, update as follows:
Code:
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
slackware:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf

Did you check your X config file?

I had to add:

Code:
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
To get mine working correctly.

I believe I also disable 3 button emulation.

Hope it helps. Good luck.

You guys got any tips for getting all 12 buttons of a Logitech MX1000 working under Debian 3.1 with kernel 2.6.8? As of now the mouse wheel scrolls 2 guns at a time in Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament 2004, doesn't even work in Doom 3. The mouse wheel worked find under Yoper 2.1 but it just isn't working right under Debian...

touchy touchy! it's all about you, eh greenbox?

he's not spamming, he found a thread that dealt with mouse issues, and decided to extend the topic. I commend him for making the effort to browse the forums for an answer (or at least a related topic) before ASKING THE SAME QUESTION 10 people ask every day! spamming is asking the same question repeadly... you should know more about that GB

onto the question at hand:
no, i'm not sure about that... i think you can map more buttons using the xorg.conf file... but as i've never had a fancty mouse (or, more acccuratly tried to utilize more buttons on my fancy mouse) i can't help much...

Be specific on Protocol option

When you run xorgconfig, it tells you that Auto should be fine. Don't believe it.

I couldn't figure out why my scroll wheel would not work on my usbmouse (Logitech M-UV69a). It turns out that I didn't do two things:

The first was already mentioned:
Add Option "ZAxisMapping "4 5" to your mouse config section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf (or where you specified if you didn't want it there).

The second is BE SPECIFIC when telling it what protocol (at least my experience says so).

I changed
Quote:
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
to
Quote:
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
and it worked fine.

Just for further details, here is my mouse config section of xorg.conf:
Quote:

# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************


Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/usbmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"


# Mouse-speed setting for PS/2 mouse.

# Option "Resolution" "256"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

# Option "Emulate3Buttons"
# Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

# Option "ChordMiddle"


EndSection
I hope this helps someone.
