Logitech mx510

Im trying to get all my buttons and mousewheel working, but cant.

xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option        "Protocol" "PS/2"    # PS/2 Mouse
    Option        "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
    #Option        "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
     Option         "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

Any ideas?

Re: Logitech mx510

Use evdev instead, it's easier and works like a charm for me with my mx510. Wiki link.

How can anything be easier than just an entry on xorg.conf? Also isn't evdev deprecated in xorg 7.1?

Re: Logitech mx510

Whenever i change my mouse feature, i get "no screens found"

My entire xorg.conf is below, would someone with a working mouse sub in the relevant info, allowing for X to run correctly, as i have tried configs people posted here, and ones of the wiki, but X just wont start.

Section "ServerLayout"

# The Identifier line must be present

# right of screen 1.

# optionally some options to specify the way the device is to be
# used.  Those options include "CorePointer", "CoreKeyboard" and

Re: Logitech mx510

I hadn't heard anything about <code>evdev</code> being depreciated (hopefully it's not, since that's what I use for my MX510)...here's the relevant section of my <code>xorg.conf</code>:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse0"
    Driver      "evdev"
    Option      "Dev Name"       "PS2++ Logitech MX Mouse"
    Option      "Dev Phys"       "isa0060/serio1/input0"
    Option      "Device"         "/dev/input/event1"
    Option      "Resolution"     "800"
    Option      "SampleRate"     "150"
EndSection

I am using it with a PS/2 adapter and not with USB since I have it hooked up to a KVM, but I don't think I had to do anything else special to get all the buttons working.  I might be wrong about that thought since it has been a while since I had to deal with it...

Re: Logitech mx510

Well, the "no screens found" error has got nothing to do with your mouse setting, not unless it's a bug that I am not aware of.
Here is a mouse related snippet from from xorg.conf.

Section "InputDevice"

        Identifier "mx510"
        Driver  "evdev"
        Option  "Name"  "PS2++ Logitech MX Mouse"

EndSection

Now, I am not familiar with ati cards under linux but it seems that you have neither configured the display modes correctly in the appropiate screen section nor the refresh and sync settings in the appropiate monitor section.

Re: Logitech mx510

I have some problems with configuring buttons No 9 and 10 of my MX510. I have never had any problems with my mouse in the system, nor in Firefox and Konqueror. The problem is my favorite web browser is Opera and it seems to have some minor issues with aforementioned buttons. The funny thing is I've also used Opera on Mandriva before and didn't notice this kind of behavior described below.
I've tried dozens of xorg.conf examples, also I was modifying it by myself but in vain so far. I've also tested advice from our wiki, but even xvkbd and xbindkeys didn't help me much.
Here's my present InputDevice section

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse1"
        Driver       "evdev"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/event4" # (cat /proc/bus/input/devices)
        Option      "Name" "Logitech MX510"
EndSection

and here is ~/.xbindkeysrc

# Mouse Buttons
"/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "Navigate up""
m:0x0 + b:4+9
"/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "Navigate down""
m:0x0 + b:5+10
"/opt/kde/bin/konsole"
  b:8

Now the problem as I understand it lies in the signals that my mouse sends, but only signals of buttons 9 (UPWARD) & 10 (DOWNWARD) - below the output of xev.

"UPWARD"

ButtonPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1798476, (89,155), root:(774,184),
    state 0x0, button 9, same_screen YES

ButtonPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1798476, (89,155), root:(774,184),
    state 0x0, button 4, same_screen YES

ButtonRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1798476, (89,155), root:(774,184),
    state 0x800, button 4, same_screen YES

ButtonRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1798612, (89,155), root:(774,184),
    state 0x0, button 9, same_screen YES

"DOWNWARD"

ButtonPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1856325, (120,110), root:(805,139),
    state 0x0, button 10, same_screen YES

ButtonPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1856325, (120,110), root:(805,139),
    state 0x0, button 5, same_screen YES

ButtonRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1856325, (120,110), root:(805,139),
    state 0x1000, button 5, same_screen YES

ButtonRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x8b, subw 0x0, time 1856725, (120,110), root:(805,139),
    state 0x0, button 10, same_screen YES

As you can see above when the button 9 is pressed, the mouse sends signal "9+4", and while it is released it sends "4+9". The button No 10 is acting similarly. Strangely enough it's not a problem to Firefox, but in Opera some strange things happen like text being marked (see screen shot below), menus being prompted or view being change.

Are there any Opera users with similar problems who managed to resolve this?

P.S. I also tested mouse driver but then button No 9 didn't work at all, and the number of buttons was decreased so some of them were sending the same signals.

Re: Logitech mx510

I tried something similar before, but as I mentioned above the "mouse" driver doesn't seem to recognize all of my buttons. Do you use Opera? How is your mouse buttons 9 & 10 acting there if so?

Re: Logitech mx510

I've never said it wasn't working in Firefox or games. I'm having this issues on Opera exclusively but only on Arch, not in Mandriva.

Re: Logitech mx510

ahh, sorry, i didn't really read your post, my first answer was directed to the thread starter
anyway, there was thing one thing in other distros i remember - i think it was in Mandriva as well, they had a lot of additional files/directories in the /etc/X11 folder, i didn't go far into understanding what they really did, since i didn't plan on staying long with mandriva, but iirc they remapped mouse bindings which annoyed me in general, f.e instead of getting raw mouse inputs i would get something like ctrl+left arrow and ctrl+right arrow
so i suggest you check how mandriva deals with it, and how they remap it, perhaps try and reproduce that in arch linux, not sure if you can do it so it works per application which would be preferably obviously, but that would be my course of action

Re: Logitech mx510

Related question: how to make xbindkeys start on system boot? I've tried to put it in rc.conf in both DAEMONS and MODULES sections but that didn't work.

xbindkeys is not a module nor a daemon, so you can't start it that way. You have to add it to the autostart script according to your WM/DE.

If you use

GNOME: Add it to session startup, you can find it in administration somewhere
KDE: Add a link to it in ~/.kde/autostart (or sth like that)
Openbox: add it to your ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh
Other WMs: add to .xinitrc or if you use GDM or KDM, make a script.


The day Microsoft makes a product that doesn't suck, is the day they make a vacuum cleaner.

But if they tell you that I've lost my mind, maybe it's not gone just a little hard to find...
