Thumbs down X.org update messed up my mouse


Hi.

Yesterday i updated x.org rpms to newest from mandrivaUpdate, after x restart my mouse side 2 buttons stopped to work like they were working. These buttons acts like one. This is very confusing. On firefox these side buttons were automatically binded to act like forward page and back page. But the worst thing is in Enemy Territory, these 2 side buttons were binded to crouch and prone action - now it doesn't work - when i try to re-bind, it doesn't show that mouse4 -> crouch or mouse 5 -> prone now these 2 side buttons are detected as a KP_EQUALS. wtf?

Distro: Mandriva 2006
Mouse: A4Tech WOP-35 PU

Thanks for help in advance, and excuse me for my bad language

Same here. It works with a fresh install, but the complete update broke side buttons.

Similar complaint except it messed up 3D acceleration of Nvidia drivers, after each xorg update I always need to re-install Nvidia drivers, but this time it`s not having it!

It Works!!

Thank goodness. I have an IBM Thinkpad and the scrolling got turned off when i upgraded to Mandriva's latest XOrg release. I modified your line to:

$ xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9'




Anyone know how to let this start automatically on bootup??

Make a file boot.sh

Code:
#!/bin/sh
xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 2 3 8 9 4 5 6 7'
and save it in a /home/_your_profile_/.kde/Autostart

chmod 755 on file to make it executable.

You can also modify this file : /etc/X11/xinit.d/mouse_buttons
