3-button *Optical* MouseSystems Mouse in X Won't Configure Properly
I just purchased a 3-button *Optical* Mouse and I can't get the
middle button to work properly in X. The Mouse Systems protocol
does not work at all. When I move the mouse around a little,
everything gets all messed up, the pointer jumps around, and
menus flash. I tried all combinations of ClearRTS and Clear DTR
and Emulate3Buttons and Chordmiddle. I have tried just about
every possible configuration, and the most success I have is
with the Microsoft Protocol. However, when I *click* the middle button,
the mouse acts as if the first button is being held down for
about half a second. Emulate3Buttons works when buttons 1 and 3
are depressed, but I specifically bought this mouse so I can
have three buttons.
The actually mouse works perfectly fine in text mode with
"gpm -t ms"--this is the bare Microsoft protocol, not the
Does anyone out there have one of these mice, or can someone
please offer some ideas?
