HELP: /dev/gpmdata+X-v4+3rd button?


i am setting up a new machine, and am again confronted with the setting
up of a mouse....

this time i didn't managed to set up the mouse under X directly, in any
case it behaves strangely and i can't test it conveniently under
XF86Setup, the program ends nearly immediately with a core dump....

but, strangely enough gpm managed to use the mouse correctly....

i am running under unstable with a cordless logitech kbd+mouse (maybe
the type is Y-RA1), The whole thing is a wheelmouse, so if it could be
possible to setup also some function to the wheel...

BTW i tryed Intellimouse as one of the first protocols for the mouse...

anyway, as usual i have the same problem as ever when reading from
gpmdata: No way to get the 3rd button to work, acutally i have to work
with emulate3buttons and hit the 2 external buttons to get the 3rd

thats a problem i never managed to solve and that is present on all my
other systems (i solved it by throwing out gpm...)

but now i am kinda stuck with gpm,  so is there a way to get the 3rd
button (and maybe the wheel) to work correctly?
