My mouse buttons work fine out of the box (after gyration "connect") and with Seth's mappings. What I really want is play & pause buttons working for "LinuxMCE DVD" playback.
This morning more buttons appear to be working, so I wonder if the machines have downloaded additional software or something.
Yesterday, if everything was off and I pressed the large green media button to activate the system, nothing would happen. This morning I just tried it, and it worked.
What I meant by the left and right gyro buttons not working was...
While watching a video, the left and right gyro buttons don't bring up the menu options. I have to use the Volume Up and Volume Down keys to activate those, and from there, the 3 gyro buttons work as they should.
There are keys that don't work in various media, but I guess it's an improvement over the MCE Remote + Gyro Mouse. Hopefully just this larger remote will run the system on its own.
I guess I may need to sit down and go through the various media types and see what keys do and don't work at the moment, and perhaps we can all fiddle from there... unless, as TSChak has pointed out, there are apps we can't tap into through Xmodmap?
