I am now as happy as one can get with my linux box (100% MS free). After setting up my SB Live (big mistake ) to use all 4 speakers I need to set up the next two things:
Asign my extra side buttons to copy and paste.
This is what my Xfconfig-4 looks like for the mouse:
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "Resolution" "100"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
This way I get the side buttons to do the scroll up/down instead of the roller but if I use
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
as suggested in the howto, I get the roller to work but xev won't see the side buttons.
So at the moment I set just run
to get the roller to roll and free the side buttons.
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
Two questions on this:
1.How do I get the above to run each time I login (.xinitrc is there but wont run at start up ).
2. How do I asign the side buttons to copy and paste?
Also if there is a way to set Xfconfig-4 so that I avoid the xmodmap command?
Finally, how can I have Num lock on everytime I log on?
I use RH7.2 (2.4.13-ac8 smp)
KDE 2.2.1 (stock)
XFree 4.1.0 (stock)
MS optical mouse (4 buttons + roller/middle button) -> was a gift, sorry folks.
Thank you for your time
