Driver mod or input conf for mouse?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i use a deathadder on my home desktop due to gaming... and... its kinda irritating when i go into quake2 that i finally got working by compiling from source and i end up not having mouse4 or mouse5 available to me both i use for necessary scripts in my quake2 config... dont know how to fix the issue at all -.-

also, maybe fixing whatever might be causing the problem would possibly fix the semi horrid mouse input in aprq2 lol BUT that could also just be an input cvar in the client... xD

and idk if the issue is related or not but one thing i do miss from browsing on windows when i browse on linux is that i cant middle click and move the mouse to scroll web pages :/ any fix for that?


debian, openbox, aka #!
Kinda meh now...

A bit of searching comes up with this xorg.conf section:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier     "Mouse0"
   Driver         "mouse"
   Option         "Name" "Razer Deathadder"
   Option         "Device" "/dev/mouse"
   Option         "Vendor" "Razer"
   Option         "CorePointer"
   Option         "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
   Option         "Buttons"  "7"
   Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"  
   Option         "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
EndSection
You should change Identifier and Device to match your system.

Don't use Xorg, use xinput for the mouse now. Learning xinput is a pain in the arse, especially after you have learned the xorg way. =( Everything is xinput now though, mouse, keyboard, joystick, everything. I would suggest you finding out how to get the mouse re-mapped and working in xinput. You might have to run a script at startup to re-map the keys the way you want, I can help you with part of that.

I have a DeathAdder and I basically just have a few lines of xinput commands in my .xinitrc.

Code:
$ xinput list
Would be a good place to start so that you can see the names of all of your xinput devices.
