Genius Mouse and X ?

Post by Andy Ho » Fri, 06 Jan 1995 09:30:40



Hi,

    Does anyone know of a Genius 3-button mouse will work with
X, and if so, what I should configure it as, both from the kernel
and X points of view?

Thanks,

Andy Hore.

I have a genius GM-F303 and it works fine with all three buttons.
You must configure it to MouseSystems-Mode. (look into XF86Config,
dont forget selection in rc.local).

Hi Andy,
  I have a Genius GM-6000. I run it in 3 button mode with problems.
For text mode terminals I have selection set as :
        selection -t msc -pm

For X windows I have :
        mousesystems "/dev/ttyS0"
        BaudRate 1200
in my Xconfig file.

My mouse device looks like :
        lrwxrwxrwx   1 root  root    5 Jan 10 00:33 /dev/mouse -> ttyS0

Switch the mouse to 3-button mode.

make a link from /dev/mouse to your right /dev/cua?.

In text mode use:
% selection -t msc &
or
% gpm -t msc &

In X, add/change the mouse line in Xconfig:
MouseSystems "/dev/ttyS?"

Hi,

Yes it will work with a 3-button mouse.
To configure the mouse correct you must update your systwm.xxxxrc.
The xxxx are standing for your window-manager.
You can find the file in /usr/X11/lib/X11/xxxx.

As window-managers you can select eg. fvwm
                                      olwm
                                      etc.

Read the man page from xxxx how to configure you mouse

Hope this will help you.

Best regards

        Well to get it working in the 1st place you need to configure your
    /usr/lib/X11/XF86Config file to make your X-server select the proper
    mouse protocol. I suggest you read the XF86Config man-page first, see
    below.

        For a Genius HiMouse (3-buttons) you need to set the Protocol to
    MouseSystems. Like;

        Section "Pointer"
            Protocol    "MouseSystems"
            Device      "/dev/mouse"
        EndSection

        Once this is working you can start editing/configuring button bin-
    dings from the various window-manager configuration files as explained
    by Jan Rooijackers.

Regards,
-- Wimth.

== From the XF86Config man-page ==
        ..
        ..

       The Pointer section is used to specify the pointer  device
       and  parameters.   The  entries available for this section
       are:

       Protocol "protocol-type"
               specifies the pointer device protocol  type.   The
               protocol types available are:

                    BusMouse
                    Logitech
                    Microsoft
                    MMSeries
                    Mouseman
                    MouseSystems
                    PS/2
                    MMHitTab
                    Xqueue

XFree86                    Version 3.1                          3

XF86Config(4/5)                                   XF86Config(4/5)

        ..

 
 
 

1. Genius Mouse stays at top of the screen; Gnome with Genius Netmouse Pro

I am using Redhat 6.0 and Xfree86 with Gnome.
I do have a problem with my mouse, Genius Netmouse Pro.
I have configured it as a busmouse and  PS/2 in xf86config. In both cases my
mousepointer stays at top of the screen. No matter how I move my mouse over
the pad.
Who can help me to resolve this problem?
