Mouse buttons and LinuxPPC 2000 Q4

Mouse buttons and LinuxPPC 2000 Q4

Post by DJTbea » Thu, 26 Jul 2001 23:17:48

I tried what has been posted for YDL 2.0 and nothing seems to work. Things I

the 3 line echo set of commands.
The showkey and mod of input.h
The bootx kernel argument adb_buttons= 1,103,111 - with and without the 1 on
it (seen from other posts)

My problem- I have panels in places I don't want them and would like to get
rid of them. I tried to go into the panels preferences to see if I could
reset to a default, but find no option for this. Please advise. Also, while
it seems KDE installed, it won't let me switch to it with the window
managers or at logon- any tips??

Thanks, DJTbear


1. G3 Powerbook (Wallstreet), ADB Mouse PPC 2000 Q4, 3 button emulation

I know this is an FAQ, but none of the frequent answers solve my problem !

On a G3 Powerbook (Wallstreet) with an ordinary one-button ADB Mouse using
PPC 2000 Q4 I am trying to set up the 3 button emulation (for KDE as it

None of the suggestions (like clearing the Xmodmap) to turn of the alt
mapping of the option key work.

Using "adb_buttons=" in the boot options doesn't seem to work either. The
Yellow Dog suggestion of "adb_buttons=1,102,111" doesn't seem to work.

Using "showkey" to find out the mappings of F11 and F12 respectively
gives 87 and 88, but neither "adb_buttons=1,87,88" nor "adb_buttons=87,88"
seems to work.

If anyone has solved this problem for this particular hardware combination
I would love to know.

I did try looking for a 3-button ADB mouse somewhere (like Kensington) but
can't find one anywhere. Any suggestions ?
