I don't use them much, but the side buttons work for me. I can get events for them in xev, and I've noticed that in konqueror they are bound to scroll left/right. Probably other KDE apps, also, if I can arrange to have a need for side-scrolling in them.

yup getting reports from xev for every button, would be nice if more manufacturers took note of linux, no worries though, happy with my mouse as it is, once again thanks.

I'm not sure about all the steps to get 10 buttons working.

I'm using gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.5-r1, should I patch something?

I've the evdev module loaded and /dev/input/event* are created succesfully, but when I set
Code:
Option      "Protocol" "evdev"
Option      "Device" "/dev/input/event0"


it does not start and says protocol evedv is unknow.

Thanks in advice.

Which X server are you using? xorg-x11 does not include the evdev patches yet, but I believe xfree does.

wizard69:

When I tried xorg last week it didn't include the patches and I had to apply them myself. I'm back to using xfree anyways as xorg will not run with the nvidia driver, despite all the others saying that it does for them.

Stolz:

According to bugzilla, the patches were added to xfree-4.3.0-r6.

Can't do a thing now, my computer locks spontaneously over the last 2-3 weeks and I'm not home to fix it right now. I did get the xorg-x11 working w/ nvidia - it's not the nvidia driver that's the problem, xorg-x11 is broken if built with the pie USE flag. It's patched and works, I'll put up the patched ebuild when I can.

I can connect my MX700 directly to the USB port, or with a adapter to the ps/2 port. Is there any benefit in connecting in one or another?

Thanks in advance for your answers,


Guillermo

Yes, I did, and I believe they've made it into newer xfree, but not xorg-x11 ebuilds.

I don't understand why the patch onlye xfree, since xorg is the future in the X business.

I hope this situation change.

Thanks for your answer,

Guillermo

Probably because I only submitted the bug for the xfree package, before the xorg-x11 package existed?

Just wanted to thank you, CheshireCat. You're my idol today. Everything works fine. I used your ebuild and just changed patches version in it to the latest one. Thanks again.

Can anyone tell me about a problem where *connecting* a Logiteh MX510 makes xorg throw up a blank screen ?

The mouse is Ok as it works in WinXP and Knoppix. Removing the mouse makes xorg start normally.

It seems they don't have added them, because I've just merged xfree-4.3.0-r6 (using the complete path to the .ebuild) and it still says evdev is an unknown protocol.

Code:
# emerge -p xfree
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] x11-base/xfree-4.3.0-r6


Code:
# strings /usr/X11R6/bin/X | grep evdev
#


:(

Now I'm downloading the "tarred" file for the pre-release you mentioned before. Hope It goes well.

Rgds.

whoa, how did you get 10 different events? I have 10 buttons configured and almost all working, but the two buttons on either side of the scrollwheel are still sending the same events as the scrollwheel.


Would you mind posting your config sections from xorg.conf and xmodmap?

The only thing you can do with those buttons near scrollwheel is to change their behavour e.g. they scroll continuously or not. That's hardware design. Those buttons just duplicate scrollwheel.
