Need to get Logitech Mx rev mouse to work properly

Postby slope » Sat Jan 19, 2008 4:23 pm

I have googled and then I found http://rootsmith.ca/mxrev-linux.html how-to article.
I tried to follow step by step guide but when I try to paste the comand in the terminal window I get this msg:

Code: Select all

bash: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: Permission denied


How do I get permission? Is there any other ways to edit the file then via terminal? Could it be edited without the terminal?

Permission denied is almost always that you did not use sudo
The guide you found is not specifically for *buntu so you need to take that into account
So

Code: Select all

gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

in gnome or

Code: Select all

kdesu kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf
in KDE
For xfce you would use mousepad

You need btnx, to assign the correct actions to the buttons. If you get it working without dual assignment, I am interesting to hear how!

This configuration gave me button 1, 2, 3, scrollwheel (4,5) and thumbbuttons 6 and 7.
Button 6 = Back buttong in Firefox (the one I was after)

Code: Select all

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

Thanks for the info Thomas. It worked fine for me too. I did have to reboot. This "back button" was the thing I missed most with Daryna. It worked out of the box with MiniMe.......Sloto
