OpenSUSE Hardware :: Get The Forward And Back Buttons On Logitech Surface Mouse Working In 11.2
Dec 31, 2009
I am trying to get the forward and back buttons on my Logitech Surface mouse working in openSUSE 11.2 running as a guest in VMware Workstation 7 on a Win7 x64 Pro host. I have read many places about editing the xorg.conf file and have done so successfully under Ubuntu in the past. I have successfully installed VMware Tools and everything is working as expected except the side buttons on the mouse. I have no current xorg.conf file
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)
How do i make VLC jump forward or back using the mouse wheel regardless of where i have the mouse cursor in the window? I went to preferences and changed the hotkey to 'short forward jump' to mouse wheel forward, but nothing seems to happen when i press the forward button.
(experienced in 9.XX and 10.04) Some of the time ubuntu works properley, but when i open a few windows the mouse and keyboard work fine to selected things except for the left and right buttons on the mouse...
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my systems. In the file browser or any internet browser, if I click on back, forward or up, nothing happens. I stays on the current page/location. Even if goes back, sometimes, it again comes back automatically to current page/location. I can navigate using keyboard but not with mouse.
the Squeeze uprgade I also lost the middle mouse functionaly of my Logitech Marble Mouse. I do not remember how I set it up to be honest. I am not sure if it was by default middle was mouse was "pressing 2 buttons on eachside at the same time" or I did set up manually using Xmod or similar tool. I might have even set up in the hal settings. The reason I do not remember exactly is that I used multiple tuts and places to set this up long time ago and now that the functionality is gone I am kind of confused about how to go ahead about it.
I need to get the comparative info off the new desktop, but I am currently hampered by the old mouse and the bug, whereby when I asked for the LXDE desktop I also got Gnome installed, and Lightdm ignores my request to start LXDE and dumps me in Gnome!!
The main differences that I have found was in the modules where the 32 bit one uses uhci_hcd, while the 64 bit one uses xhci_hcd. The dmesg section is like the above, finding the Unifying device, but is missing the last line where djdevice finds the mouse..
I am running 9.10 (Karmic) on a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop with Nvidia graphics. I have installed the -185 driver which has solved most problems. However every so often the system seems to lose track of the mouse button state. The first symptom of this is that all mouse movements on text are treated as if the left button is being held down: mouse movement selects text rather than just moving the graphics cursor. I am using a M$ optical mouse.
I have tried:unplugging and replugging the mouse using Ctl-Alt-F1 to go into a console and Ctl-Alt-F7 to go back to the GUI I am able to shut down all of the open windows normally using the keyboard, but the only way I have so far found to get the GUI working again is to reboot the system.
I've run ubuntu 9.04, 10.04, and 10.10 on my Dell latitude e6400. On every version the mouse buttons stop working after a few clicks, on the trackpad and with a USB mouse. lock panel is checked if i right click. If i uncheck lock panel it will work for a little bit longer then stops. Anybody know how to fix this?This is my first time using ubuntu and i really want to love it. Had xp before on the Dell, but I don't like it. We're a Mac family, but if this works ubuntu could change our minds!
Here's a weird one. Once in a while I inadvertantly hit the key combination RIGHT-ARROW + INSERT on my keyboard while editing in Geany. This stops my mouse buttons from working and I have to kill xorg. Anyone heard of this before or how to fix it? I know I know, I should stop hitting those keys by accident, but it seems to happen at least once a day! This is on Fedora 12.
After upgrading from OS11.1 to 11.2 I am annoyed by the fact that no configuration options exist any more to customize for my mouse. This is a 2-button trackball very ergonomic for people. that are prone to have RSI problems like me, a real solution.
Before in 11.1 I could use Yast to set up X that it would emulate a scrollwheel with the right button. Unfortunately now with 11.2 all has to be recognised automatically and they simply threw out the mouse configuration in Yast, leaving us with some useless console mouse configuration. Not every upgrade means an improvement, which seems very much like ....
Could somebody help me or give me pointers what is the procedure to recover this emulated scrollwheel functionality? I know it has to do with xorg.conf, but I don't have that file and without this good start it will be difficult for me to get anywhere. How is this file re-created?
I have a Logitech VX Revolution, and I would like to change the "search/find" button to be used to middle click as opposed what it currently does, opening a new google tab in firefox. The mouse settings in System Settings does not have a tab for editing what the buttons do. (I thought there should be a Logitech tab, but I guess that is for USB only)
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
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
My goal is to be able to use my gamepad as a normal mouse, and also have some of the keys configured to open certain programs or do other things. Does anyone have any advice on what I need to install or if this is possible?
About 5 years ago I bought a Logitech wireless keyboard. I want to add a wireless mouse now. Logitech has no docs on its website for the keyboard or receiver. Does anyone know how to figure out whether any mouse I buy now will be compatible with my old receiver? I know that all wireless mice come with receivers, but I have limited USB ports.
I use a set of keyboard + mouse Logitech MK330. So, they are wireless in five minutes of inactivity have to sleep. But sleep only the keyboard. The mouse does not fall asleep. On distro Ubuntu and Windows goes into standby mode, both devices. How can I fix it to Debian?
During installation Debian distro, mouse goes to sleep, but on the installed system will not go into standby mode.
