    Mouse setup

    I'm trying to get a microsoft wireless laser mouse 6000 working on opensuse 10.3. The basic 3 buttons and scroll wheel are working but the two side buttons and the horizontal scroll are not.

    I've done some googling and found some configurations for xorg but they either don't work or they break my xserver (the ones referring to evdev driver generally do this) and I need to do an sax2 to fix it

    Help! (please)

    Try this configurations link:

    HOWTO Advanced Mouse/Individual Configurations - Gentoo Linux Wiki

    It's for Gentoo, but will probably work in Suse as well.

    Thanks but I came across that page in my googling and tried it. The X server wont load once I put that setting in and I have to use sax2 from the command line to restore the original settings

    Well got the side buttons to work using the following code in xorg

    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "mouse"
    Identifier "Mouse[1]"
    Option "Buttons" "7"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "Name" "Microsoft USB Mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
    Just horizontal scroll to go

    Glad you got it going!

    If I should run across anything on the horizontal scroll issue, I'll post back.
