7 button mouse

Postby haveanotherpuff » Thu Apr 26, 2007 3:41 pm

I have a seven button mouse,I have all them working properly except button 2 and 3 are reversed,button 2 instead of being the right click is now the scroll wheel click and vice versa,the wheel scroll as it should but the wheel click is acting as the right click should.

It is very irratating.

I have installed imwheel and edited zorg..conf like this,which I found in other post,but still no go::

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
EndSection

Try changing your ButtonMapping option to this...

Code: Select all

Option "ButtonMapping" "1 3 2 6 7"

Close all apps and restart your X server (Ctrl-Alt-Backspace).

Any difference with the mouse buttons then?

Login on the text terminal, and then type this command:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg


Hope this helps ... :?

This somehow fixed it,only problem is is that when I rebooted the only buttons that worked were the right.left.and wheel,button,side buttons stopped.

echo -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 4 5\n" > ~/.Xmodmap

echo -e "pointer = 1 3 2 4 5 8 9 6 7\n" > ~/.Xmodmap

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 3 2 4 5 6 7"
