I have a 5 button mouse (7 if you include the scroll wheel), and I've been trying to map the buttons so that it works the same as the gyro mouse in the demo video. I basically have to be able to press F6 & F8 using the two side buttons on the mouse. I've configured xorg.conf and used xmodmap and imwheel to map F6 & F8 to these buttons, and it works perfectly in Ubuntu! The mouse button assignment is 1,2,3,4,5 (the normal buttons, including the scroll wheel), and 7 & 8 (for the side buttons).
I've changed the xorg.conf.pluto mouse setup to match, but for some reason it just won't work in MCE.
Anyone know what button assignments MCE uses to map the Gyro mouse? Any ideas how to get this setup working?
I'm sure there's loads of people trying to do this! If we can manage to get it going, I will try to get the instrustions posted in the FAQ.
