Recommended Posts

Bonjour

it's impossible with the mandriva 2008.0 to have the two thumb buttons of my mouse working. All the previous solutions are inoperant. Help !

Which mouse model?

And please, paste here the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

- maybe not all of it- just the parts starting with

Section "InputDevice"

it seems the kernel recognises the mices with 7 buttons and the scrolling functionned out of the box (no zaxismapping needed) but the buttons 8 an 9 are ignored. With previous kernels I used zaxismapping and xmodmap and all functionned. I have tried a lot of combinations but none of them gave me the before and forward action on my thumb buttons.

My xorg.Conf actually is

 

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"

Driver "mouse"

Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"

Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

EndSection

 

the mouse is a Trust ami mouse 250SP

The only way I found is using xvkbd and xbindkeys with the following lines in my .xbindkeysrc :

 

"/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]""
m:0x0 + b:8
"/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Right]""
m:0x0 + b:9

 

All better solutions are welcomed

Are there other mice configured like this?:

 

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse2"

Driver "evdev"

Option "bustype" "0x0003"

Option "relBits" "+0+1+2"

Option "product" "0xc517"

Option "vendor" "0x046d"

Option "HWheelRelativeAxisButtons" "7 6"

EndSection

 

if so try commenting out the lines Option "relBits" "+0+1+2" and change Option "XkbModel" to "evdev"

 

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Keyboard1"

Driver "kbd"

Option "XkbModel" "evdev"

Option "XkbLayout" "us(alt-intl)"

Option "XkbOptions" "compose:rwin"

EndSection

I defined Mouse2 as CorePointer but it seems that it's no difference.

The comment of relBits and the change of Xkbmodel has no visible effect.

I think you should have left it

InputDevice "Mouse2" "SendCoreEvents"
