The rocker should serve three fuctions:
scroll up, accomplished by rocking the switch up
scroll down, accomplished by rocking the switch down
enter/select, accomplished by pressing the switch in.
Out of the box the third function does perform as expected, but the first and second - rocking it up or down to act as a scroll wheel - does nothing. Running xbindkeys shows no activity registered when the rocker is pushed up or down. It only registers activity when the switch is pushed in:
Code: Select all
m:0x0 + c:36
There are three additional keys on the bezel - one for rotating the screen, one to send "esc", and one to send "ctrl-alt-delete". All three work. The switch also works 100% under Windows 7 x64, so I know that there isn't a defect with any of the hardware.
I have played with the default "mouse and touchpad" settings applet, as well as installed the gpointing-device-settings package to see if anything in there jumped out at me, but it does not seem to offer any settings that control the switch.
Looking for some help, as I do consider this piece of hardware important, I use it frequently in Windows and would like to have it working 100% in Linux. Any advice on how to make this work is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Also, I imagine someone will ask me for an output of xinput, so that is as follows:
Code: Select all
