Re: Logitech Mouseman+/Logitech Mouseman Wheel

Hi Andrew,

Quoth Andrew Clark,

I have a logitech MouseMan+ (with a wheel, 5 buttons, bloody huge, but
very comfortable), working comfortably with X4 (testing). It's working
through the gpm repeater, so here all all the relevant bits:

This allows me to use the mouse wheel (imwheel is not required, most X
programs support it natively), and the thumbwheel for pasting.



[rei:~]% cat /etc/gpm.conf
#  /etc/gpm.conf - configuration file for gpm(1)
#  If mouse response seems to be to slow, try using
#  responsiveness=15. append can contain any random arguments to be
#  appended to the commandline.  
#  If you edit this file by hand, please be aware it is sourced by
#  /etc/init.d/gpm and thus all shell meta characters must be
#  protected from evaluation (i.e. by quoting them).
#  This file is used by /etc/init.d/gpm and can be modified by
#  /usr/sbin/gpmconfig.
append="-l \"a-zA-Z0-9_.:~/\300-\326\330-\366\370-\377\""
