OpenSUSE Hardware :: Middle Mouse Button - Can't Figure Out How To Program Buttons

May 31, 2010

Ive been using opensuse for a little while now. Recently ran into a problem My favorite mouse broke, so i went out and got a travel one. It has a very toucht third button under the scroll wheel. Apperently this button is to paste, but every time i scroll, it makes my life miserable, especially when im reading a lengthy page in firefox. I cannot figure out how to program the buttons. Ive googled, and seen some programs that MIGHT help. but this seems to be something that is built in to the OS. The mouse yast plugin doesnt give you the choice of shuting off the third button, or even reassigning it. I want the paste functionality GONE from my **** mouse

OpenSUSE :: Mouse Middle Button Paste Is Not Working?

Mar 4, 2010

Suddenly the mouse middle button paste feature does not work in Bluefish and OpenOffice. It is driving me crazy. I have become so used to this feature I am constantly forgetting to ctl c/v to cut and paste.

It works everywhere else. ( For example, I can use it in this text box that I am typing this message in. ) and when I select text in either Bluefish or OpenOffice it shows up in Klipper. Strangely, if I select that text in Klipper I can paste it into either application with the middle button.

This just started a few days ago. I have no idea what changed on my system. It is a KDE4 desktop, if that is relevant.

Fedora Hardware :: Mouse Middle Button Mouse Paste No Longer Works In FC14?

Jan 4, 2011

I just upgraded to FC14 (64) from FC13 (32) and the mouse middle button (simultaneous left+right button) paste function has stopped working. I tested it with 3 makes/models of different mice and trackballs. For some reason (left+right) mouse returns the same code as the single right-button ('xev' value = 3). This worked in all previous FC and RH distros I've used in the past. Did a default setting get zonked somewhere? System: Toshiba laptop w/ USB mouse.

Ubuntu :: Middle Mouse Button - Disable CAPS LOCK Key?

May 3, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04 (and a new machine) from 8.04 and I can't seem to find a way to have the middle button on my mouse act as a double click like I had it on my old machine. I tried putting the input stanza from my old xorg.conf but then X would not come up. The new tab thing it does in Nautilus is driving me nuts. I see the xorg.conf isn't really used anymore, and there is something about making rules in udev but I can't seem to find the exact wording that I need to make that one rule. I would also like to disable the CAPS LOCK key if anyone knows how to do that without xorg.conf. Maybe someone can point me to a udev tutorial?

Ubuntu :: Allowing Middle Mouse Button Click To Scroll?

May 11, 2010

I want to be able to auto scroll by clicking my middle mouse button. In Firefox you can do this in the about:config easily, but with Google Chrome, I don't know what to do.

There is no Chrome option to allow this, so I guess I'd have to configure some stuff. Does anyone know how to do this? I really prefer Chrome over Firefox, and would like to go back to it, but can't without auto scroll.

Debian Programming :: Trigger Interrupt With Middle Mouse Button In Terminal

Feb 2, 2015

Ctrl-c with middle mouse button (MMB) trigger in running bash script trigger.

The key combination Ctrl-C or "^C" with the keyboard triggered on a running bash script stands for "signal interrupt" (SIGINT) and terminates the process.

For my workflow in the test phase, how I could do that with the MMB-Buffer, followed by the modified script command:

Code: Select allscript runs
script runs
script runs

Signal interrupt and rerun with MMB trigger:

Code: Select all^C; ./script.sh
modified script runs
modified script runs
does not work and 2 hours meta-crawlers

General :: Mouse Button Programming - How Two Smaller Buttons Addressed

Apr 14, 2010

I have a Logitech ambidextrous trackball, with a left and right mouse button. The trackball device also has two smaller left and right buttons. I'd like to know how those two smaller buttons are addressed. Ultimately, I'd like to assign certain keystrokes to them, to make work faster. For example, ALT+<right arrow> moves a browser back one page. how to name these keys, or whether/how I should address this USB mouse. FWIW, I'm actually using it through the PS/2 mouse adapter, since that doesn't take a USB slot.

Software :: Remote Control Buttons Give A Signal, But Still Can't Figure?

Jun 28, 2010

I'm using Debian Squeeze and my 0-9 remote control buttons and power off button work even if I've didn't installed lirc. In a Gnome desktop I could set up the volume too, but now as I'm using Fluxbox I can't start the volume control applet anymore (by the way does somebody knows any handy volume applet for Fluxbox ?)So my question is that if some button of my remote control already work without lirc, then there must by some drivers installed, when I've upgraded to a newer kernel, but I can't figure out what makes my remote control to work. Does anybody knows something about this and if there's something already installed for IR devices in newer kernels how can it be further configured ?If i type the command "cat /dev/input/event6" in my terminal I can see that all my remote control buttons give a signal, but still I can't figure it out how can I set up all of them.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Remapping Mouse Buttons To Keyboard?

Mar 8, 2010

I have a wireless keyboard with touchpad However the position of the mouse buttons is very unconfortable and so I would like to remap the mouse button to some kes on the keyboard.

I would like to use the media keys which are present on the keyboard. They are useless to me since most of the programs that I use have their own keyboard shortcuts for controls such as play, stop etc.

I mapped the keys using xev, and for instance I found that the "play" key mapped to keycode 172

by trying someting like

xmodmap -e "keycode 172 = Pointer_Button1"

nothing happens.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mouse Buttons Stop Working, Relogging Fixes?

Dec 18, 2010

Upon logging into kde 4.4 the left mouse button (3 button usb mouse) becomes unresponsive on certain windows. For instance the toolbar may still respond to left-click while other windows on the desktop do not register it. However more and more windows/panels become unresponsive rather quickly. The same happens for right-click sometimes but far less often. Some functionality can be recovered by re-plugging the mouse.

Logging out and logging back in solves the problem until the next reboot. I have tried different users and wiping the .kde and .kde4 folders. The problem persists. I can stil work by relogging every time I turn on my computer but it does waste a lot of time so if there are any ideas I'd apreciate it. KDE 4.4 release 3 (There seems to be no updates in YAST available)

OpenSUSE :: Creating Mouse Shortcuts (middle Click) "xbindkeys And Xte"

Sep 17, 2010

I want the "search" button on my mouse to be a middle click. In my .xbindkeysrc file I have

Code: "xte 'keydown Control_L' 'mouseclick 1' 'keyup Control_L'"# m:225 but it still just selects the google search bar on firefox. Using xev, it shows Code: KeyRelease event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x2600001, root 0xb4, subw 0x0, time 166414200, (1135,637), root:(1139,660), state 0x10, keycode 225 (keysym 0x1008ff1b, XF86Search), same_screen YES, XLookupString gives 0 bytes: XFilterEvent returns: False that means its seen as a keyboard button 225 right?

I tried doing something like Code: "konqueror" m:225 to test it, but nothing. Something is overwriting its function. In Configure Desktop > Keyboard & Mouse > shortcut stuff, and didn't see the search button used anywhere.

Debian Hardware :: Middle Button Not Working (Logitech USB Receiver)

Apr 24, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie (64-bit) with XFCE

Code: Select all$ uname -srvmo
Linux 3.12-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.12.6-2 (2013-12-29) x86_64 GNU/Linux

And my middle button doesn't work anymore. The problem doesn't seem to be configuration-related as xev, xinput test and cat /dev/input/mice show nothing after clicking the middle button.

Here's the output from xinput:

Code: Select all$ xinput
⎡ Virtual core pointer                       id=2   [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                 id=4   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Receiver                      id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                      id=3   [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                id=5   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=6   [slave  keyboard (3)]

Could it be a kernel issue?

Ubuntu :: Lost Middle Button On Thinkpad / Get It Back To Work?

May 24, 2011

One of the major problems I've had after a clean install of Natty is losing my middle touchpad button (just a button, not a scroll, old school T500).

When I plug in a mouse, the middle button on the mouse works fine (firefox links, pasting text, compiz rotation, etc).

I imagine it's something that goes into xorg.conf, no? Either way

Ubuntu :: Get The Middle Button On X220 To Toggle Scrolling With The Trackpoint?

How do I get the middle button on my X220 to toggle scrolling with the Trackpoint?

And when I installed I couldn't get it to boot from USB in UEFI only. Why is that? How do I fix that so I can do a quick reinstall before I do too much else.

And before I do that reinstall is there anyway to backup the 300MB+ update that I just downloaded because I have appalling internet?

OpenSUSE :: Press The Right Mouse Button For More Options (such As Mount Or Eject)

Mar 29, 2011

openSuse 11.4 64bit fresh install, KDE 4.6.0. Now I am probably being obtuse, but If I click on the wonderfully named "My Computer" I get, among other things, a display of Disk Information; hard drive partitions and any DVDs or CDs. If I let my mouse cursor alight on any of these, I get a message "Press the right mouse button for more options (such as Mount or Eject)" But if I press the right mouse button, I don't get those options; I get a message "Open in new window, Open in new tab, Open with ..., Create file project with K3b, and Compress ...".
