wondering if any other ppc users have had the issue whereby, after the first unsuccessful power down (or sometimes the second or third) of a fresh ubuntu 9.10 install, mouse button 3, which is normally mapped to F12, becomes function (fn) + F12.? This is really annoying as you now have to use two hands to activate the little drop down menu. So i tried remapping mouse button three to that strange little key beside the left arrow on an ibook keyboard that looks like a picnic table and which, under os x, renames stuff.
I ran "gksu gedit /etc/sysctl.d/10-arch-specific.conf" and edited it accordingly: mouse button 3 from keycode 88 to 104. It works, but i still have to press function to activate it and fn + F12 still works simultaneously (though it is no longer defined in the conf file), and my new key doesnt offer the same functionality (eg, it doesnt give spell check options in firefox where fn + F12 does). Arg. Anybody know how to make it so that i can activate mouse button three without having to press function?
I've got a F10 machine set up as a media center (with mythtv...mythdora to be precise) and I love that it's based on fedora since I'm most familiar with it..I would like to map the power button press to a command "pkill X" since sometimes the frontend freezes and running this command kills X (I'm running ratpoison for the speed and simplicity...it just gets the job done and doesn't get in the way).Any help in mapping a single button press to "pkill X" would be greatly appreciated. I also need some help adding this command to the sudo list so the regular "mythtv" user will be able to run it...no password can be entered since the machine has no keyboard. Currently I log in via ssh to get this done but it would be nice to not have to boot up a laptop just to do this.
I play World Of Warcraft and in Windows I used a program that allowed me to map my 2 side buttons to one being CTRL and the other ALT to make for much easier keybindings. Does anyone know how I can do this with ubuntu?
I've been playing a fair amount of Minecraft. Awesome game, but I really dislike that the mouse buttons bindings aren't editable. I was wondering if there was a program out there for Linux that can remap a mouse button (Like [Right Click]) to a key on your keyboard. (Like the [Spacebar]) I've done some digging around, but nothing shows up to edit the three standard mouse buttons, just the extended ones.
I have an Apple Aluminium keyboard. To the left of 1 key I have the less/greater (< >) key, not grave/tilde (` ~). xmodmap does not work for me: layout switching (done with setxkbmap) resets my xmodmap changes. .Xmodmap file does not help either. How do I remap the tilde key?
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.
CNEE(1) General Commands Manual says this. RECORD OPTIONS --first-last Print only first and last of multiple successive MotionEvent. So I try this. my test window is Calculator 3.14.1 cnee --record --mouse --keyboard --time 5 --store-mouse-position --first-last --stop-key h -o xnee.xns -e xnee_record.log -v;The result is, xnee.xns lists every mouse movement.But I only need to record the mouse location when there is a mouse button event. it seems --first-last does not work. How can I make it work?I use

just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.

I was using lucid since beta 2 without problems, but since few days I can't get a menu when I click on the right mouse button. Doesn't work on the desktop or when for example I want to rename a file using the right mouse button. Is this a bug from gnome or a new properties?
I have a 'Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000'. In addition to the regular left/right click and scroll wheel it has an extra button on the side. In previous versions of Ubuntu I was able to remap this button to act as double-click using 'xbindkeys'. However, in Lucid this no longer seems to work. X seems to know about all of the buttons on the mouse since 'xinput' lists the device as having 13 buttons and labels button 8 as 'Button Side'. However, 'xev' does not show a button event when I press the button. Instead it shows:
I have been trying out several newcomer browsers (using webkit) as alternatives to Firefox, which seems increasingly slow to me.Midori and Arora both allow the back button of my mouse to work, as does Firefox.However, Epiphany, which would be my first choice, does not, and I can't find any way whatsoever of configuring it to do so.I can't see why such a 'flagship' app should lack such an essential feature.
While Login into ubuntu, open firefox for sometime, my left mouse button usually cannot work, while right button is OK and keyboard is also OK. Mouse pointer can be moved,however left click shows no reaction(when i move the mouse pointer to some certain icon, the icon can be highlighted just as usual but left click still shows no reaction).
I doubted this may be firefox's problem, but when I kill firefox-bin and firefox process through the terminal(keyboard is ok and i can use ALT+F2 to enter gnome-terminal), Left mouse button still cannot work. And then I have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and reboot the system. My ubuntu is 10.10, updated several days ago(this problem has been existed before the update)
Running Ubuntu Studio 10.04 with an MS wireless notebook optical mouse 4000. By default, my thumb button is acting as a "Forward" button, but I want it to be my "Back" button. I have not installed anything like imwheel, nor do I want to, especially because the button support is obviously already there, it just needs to be configured to a new command. My xorg.conf looks like this (at least the parts of it that I think are relevant,
I have tried messing with Emulate3Buttons and the ZAxisMappings, but there were no changes. Please tell me if I am in the right place? Or is there another program or something running already that is controlling my mouse.
can nautilus be set up in a way, that it has the same right-click drag & drop behaviour like windows ? i mean, i want to drag & drop using the right mouse button, and then i want a pop-up menue like the one i get using the left mouse button and ALT.
I've just got the multi-touch driver work with ubuntu 10.10 64bit on my alumni macbook. Now I can do scroll and right click with two fingers. However, one thing I really miss is the ability to move the cursor while holding the 'big button', I want to drag windows/icons with one finger holding down the physical button, and another finger dragging around.
Is there some low-level way of listing which mouse button does what in Gnome? It seems my middle mouse button is mapped to something besides a middle mouse click (button 3). For example, to move or pan in apps like Xmind or blender, you need to click on hold the MMB. The app will work like expected for a split second then stop, making it useless.
This is one of the most frustrating issues I find with Gnome/Linux/etc. There is a million places to set global inputs, but no place to find them. I have been through every control panel, every compiz plugin, xorg, gconf etc, and can't find what the MMB is set too (or any other input for that matter). I know that somewhere MMB on a window title bar will send it to the back, but can't find where that is either
I'm using the Logitech MX1100 mouse which has a quite a few buttons. (10) I would like to use 2 of them for volume control (as I do for Windows) but have no idea how to in ubuntu 9.10. Is there any way I could map the buttons to control volume? I'm a minor noob so keep it simple.
I have successfully mapped the plus-minus key on the keyboard to emulate the Wheel/Middle Mouse Button click with this shell script run at startup:
Code: #!/bin/sh xmodmap -e "keycode 49 = Pointer_Button2" xkbset m
This is so I can rotate the view in Blender without clicking the wheel, because the wheel also zooms, and it's too easy to zoom inadvertently. The remaining problem is panning, a Shift-MMB combination. Now I'm lost - how can I map a key (or better still, a Shift-key combo) to the Shift-MMB click?
I would like to assign right-mouse-click behaviour to a hardware button. I can associate a keypress, or a combination of keypresses with an "xdotool click 3" command via the Gnome keyboard shortcuts.
I have the scancode of the hardware button so can use
setkeycodes scancode keycode
to mimic any key of my keyboard. However, I don't want the hardware button to mimic a single key of my keyboard that is already in use, since then the keyboard key will also activate xdotool.
So I think I need:
- either a way to associate that particular scancode with an (outlandish) keypress combo rather than a single keypress;
- or a keycode which is not currently in use, to bind to the scancode. Are there any like that and how would I find out? In the Gnome Keyboard Shortcuts list there is stuff like "XF86AudioMedia" which I'm not using -- but does that correspond to a numerical keycode value which setkeycodes understands?
I'm having a problem with gnome. When I press a multimedia key on my keyboard (or obstensibly other hotkeys although I haven't figured out exactly what). My left-mouse button stops responding. The right mouse button works fine and the mouse tracks fine. I can go into the mouse control panel and switch it to a left handed mouse and the left mouse button works, but not the right. I ran 'xinput test "HP Mouse"', and I can see the left mouse clicks coming through. So X11 at least thinks it's coming through. I've got nothing interesting that I can find in /var/log. This is really generic USB hardware. HP Mouse and Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard.
After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 I have a big problem that makes ubuntu unusable. It seems like my left mouse button has stopped working. Left mouse clicks are not registered (although right clicks are). I've tested with 3 mouses (all USB, 1 wireless, 2 wired) and all show the same problem. All three mouses work fine under Windows 7 on the same computer and under ubuntu on different computers.
Right now I can't do anything, does anyone have a good suggestion how I might go and start troubleshooting this?
I have a mouse that have left and right move clicks on its scroll so I want to set these two to switch the desktop to left of right one accordingly. Thus, do you know any way to do that. I guess, need shell command to do that and then I need to bind these commands with the button but how?
About a week ago I did a fresh install of Maverick on somebody else's laptop. Everything was fine at first, but a couple of days ago the person contacted me saying that they weren't able to move or resize windows anymore. (The only thing that does work with respect to moving a window is initializing the action by pressing Alt+F7.) Later we found out that they also can't drag and drop files or use the mouse to drag scrollbars up and down. So basically, they can't do anything that is usually done by holding down the left mouse button and moving the pointer. I've already tried the following things to make it work again:
- playing around with the mouse settings
- checking in CCSM whether the 'move window' and 'resize window' plugins were enabled
- setting desktop effects to NONE in the visual effects tab in 'appearance'
- using compiz fusion icon to (1) reload window manager and (2) switch from compiz to metacity for window management
- deleting folders containing GNOME settings from home folder (.gconf, .gconfd, .gnome2, .gnome2_private), logging out and back in afterwards to automatically create new configuration files
I've been doing a lot of googling about this but I'm running out of ideas. Most people (there don't seem to be that many) that have had a similar problem are saying that it's got something to do with compiz, and disabling it solved the problem for most of them. But in my case - no dice.
