Re: MacAlly 2-button ADB mouse?
I finally at long last got gpm working in terminal using 'gpm -m
/dev/adbmouse -t bm -Rmsc' - and setting XF86Config to use the MouseSystems
protocol. I tried PS/2 (with the appropriate protocol in the XF86Config
file), but that didn't work at all in terminal or X. I do repeat things
into /dev/gpmdata, and I have /dev/mouse pointing there as well. The
problem is this: I'm still not getting the 2nd mouse button on my MacAlly
2-button mouse. gpm is working because I have X looking there and the first
button works, but as soon as I change the -R setting gpm stops working, and
of course X doesn't like it either. Any ideas on what's wrong?
