Logitech wheel Mouse and Touchpad


Hello guys,

i have a problem with my wheelmouse. The wheel works as a third button but
I cann't scroll for now. Im using gentoo and GNOME on my laptop (with touchpad).
My xorg.conf

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
# Touchpad
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

everytime when i change my "Protocol" to "IMPS/2" my
touchpad gets crazy (can use it but the cursor jumps randomly around)

Modules:

Input Core Support -->
Mouse support
USB Support -->
UHCI (Intel,...) support
USB Human Interface device support -->
HID Input Layer support
/dev/hiddev/ raw HID suport
USB HIDB mouse basic support

please help me.

Jerry

can you print what driver uses xorg? because in your config file you select "auto"... but what driver use xorg effectively? you can find it in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Yes it's the right part. "PS/2" won't get you anything more than buttons 1, 2, and 3, whatever other config you add. You may try and use my article with different mouse drivers (link to XFree86.org inside my article), until you find the driver that suits your mouse best.

OK i changed my conf:

Section "InputDevice"

Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "USBMouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "9"
###Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

and my log says:

(**) Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
(**) Mouse0: Device: "/dev/psaux"
(**) Mouse0: Protocol: "PS/2"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse0: Core Pointer
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
(==) Mouse0: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 50
(==) Mouse0: Buttons: 3
(**) Mouse0: SmartScroll: 1
(**) Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
(**) USBMouse: Device: "/dev/mouse"
(**) USBMouse: Protocol: "IMPS/2"
(**) Option "CorePointer" "False"
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
(**) Option "Buttons" "9"
(==) USBMouse: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 50
(**) USBMouse: Buttons: 9
(**) USBMouse: SmartScroll: 1
(**) Option "CoreKeyboard"
(**) Keyboard0: Core Keyboard
(**) Option "Protocol" "standard"
(**) Keyboard0: Protocol: standard
(**) Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
(**) Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbRules: "xorg"
(**) Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbModel: "pc105"
(**) Option "XkbLayout" "de"
(**) Keyboard0: XkbLayout: "de"
(**) Option "CustomKeycodes" "off"
(**) Keyboard0: CustomKeycodes disabled
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Keyboard0" (type: KEYBOARD)
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "USBMouse" (type: MOUSE)

No I don't have a touchpad. So all I know is for a single mouse.
But I think that your mouse and touchpad actually act on the same device (what does this tell?: ls -l /dev/psaux /dev/mouse). I think so because you say, that if you change the mouse protocol from PS/2 to IMPS/2, the touchpad goes crazy, which is impossible, except if touchpad and external mouse are one single device: it is the external mouse that's going crazy, and there's nothing the touchpad can do about it.

Anyway, I think you can forget about the touchpad for now. Concentrate on your mouse, and when it's fully functionnal, then you can see if you're satisfied with the way your touchpad acts.

Now if you want to use your extra buttons or wheels, you can try following my article. There are two things you should know:
- If PS/2 works (basic features), then IMPS/2 won't, and the other way around.
- AFAIK, neither PS/2 nor IMPS/2 is able to provide anything more than buttons 1 (left), 2 (middle), and 3 (right).

Good luck.
Yves.

It's time you do some reading. I won't (and can't) give you a ready-to-use conf file.
Did you try other protocols?
Did you run xev?
...
