I'm not sure what's causing it, but my Emulate3Buttons function isn't working for my laptops mouse (worked fine for ages, and I don't recall making any changes that should effect it). HAL was recently updated, so perhaps that's what's causing it

My current Xorg.0.log is below:
Code:
(**) |-->Input Device "Mouse1"
(II) LoadModule: "mouse"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//mouse_drv.so
(II) Module mouse: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
(==) RADEON(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Mouse1: Device: "/dev/input/mice"
(**) Mouse1: Protocol: "ImPS/2"
(**) Mouse1: always reports core events
(**) Mouse1: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 100
(**) Mouse1: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Mouse1: Buttons: 9
(**) Mouse1: Sensitivity: 1
(II) evaluating device (Mouse1)
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse1" (type: MOUSE)
(II) Mouse1: ps2EnableDataReporting: succeeded
(II) AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint: Found 5 mouse buttons
(II) AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint: Configured 4 mouse buttons.
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint" (type: MOUSE)
(**) PS/2 Mouse: always reports core events
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Found 2 relative axes.
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Configuring as pointer.
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Found 3 mouse buttons
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Configured 4 mouse buttons.
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "PS/2 Mouse" (type: MOUSE)
(**) PS/2 Mouse: 2 valuators.
(**) PS/2 Mouse: Configuring in Absolute mode.
(**) PS/2 Mouse: Registering 4 buttons.
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Init
(II) PS/2 Mouse: On


Below is an old Xorg.0.log:
Code:
(**) |-->Input Device "Mouse1"
(II) LoadModule: "mouse"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//mouse_drv.so
(II) Module mouse: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
(==) fglrx(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Mouse1: Device: "/dev/input/mice"
(**) Mouse1: Protocol: "ImPS/2"
(**) Mouse1: Core Pointer
(**) Mouse1: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 50
(**) Mouse1: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Mouse1: Buttons: 9
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse1" (type: MOUSE)
(II) Mouse1: ps2EnableDataReporting: succeeded


I don't know how old that log is, but I presume the XINPUT & PS/2 sections are related to my issue. I've already tried restarting X after re-emerging xf86-input-mouse to no avail. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.[/code][/quote]

Out of curiosity are you using the synaptics driver? If so do you have more than one input device sections in your xorg.conf for mice?

At the time of my original post, I only had the one mouse entry in my Xorg.conf (nothing for synaptics, I'm coming from a Thinkpad and am a trackpoint junkie). My mouse section looked like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "Emulate3Timeout" "100"
EndSection

I tried adding a Synaptics section to no avail. Looking at my recently updated packages, I believe my issue relates to xf86-input-evdev-1.2.0

Using my current xorg.conf (with both the Synaptics section and the Mouse1 section), below is a log using xf86-input-evdev-1.2.0:
Code:

(**) |-->Input Device "Mouse1"
(==) RADEON(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Mouse1: always reports core events
(EE) Mouse1: cannot load bits
(EE) PreInit returned NULL for "Mouse1"
(II) AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint: Found 5 mouse buttons
(II) AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint: Configured 4 mouse buttons.
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint" (type: MOUSE)
(**) PS/2 Mouse: always reports core events
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Found 2 relative axes.
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Configuring as pointer.
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Found 3 mouse buttons
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Configured 4 mouse buttons.
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "PS/2 Mouse" (type: MOUSE)
(**) PS/2 Mouse: 2 valuators.
(**) PS/2 Mouse: Configuring in Absolute mode.
(**) PS/2 Mouse: Registering 4 buttons.
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Init
(II) PS/2 Mouse: On


Now using xf86-input-1.1.5 with the same xorg.conf, I get:
Code:
(**) |-->Input Device "Mouse1"
(II) LoadModule: "mouse"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//mouse_drv.so
(II) Module mouse: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
(==) RADEON(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Mouse1: Device: "/dev/input/mice"
(**) Mouse1: Protocol: "ImPS/2"
(**) Mouse1: always reports core events
(**) Mouse1: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 100
(**) Mouse1: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Mouse1: Buttons: 9
(**) Mouse1: Sensitivity: 1
(II) evaluating device (Mouse1)
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse1" (type: MOUSE)
(II) Mouse1: ps2EnableDataReporting: succeeded


Unfortunately X is crashing with xf86-input-evdev-1.1.5 emerged (I probably need to remerge HAL or xorg-server).

Okay, after remerging HAL & xorg-server, I can get X running with xf86-input-evdev and my mouse issue has gone away as I suspected. To be clear, I had to:
emerge =xf86-input-evdev-1.1.5-r2 =hal-0.5.9.1-r3 && emerge xorg-server

Previously I was using x85-input-evdev-1.2.0 and hal-0.5.10, just downgrading those files failed.

While this resolves my immediate issue, this doesn't really solve the problem. I filed Gentoo Bug 204857 to track this issue.
