Xfree-3.3 XF86config emul 3 buttons not always correctly updated
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
If you have an XF86Config which doesn't contain the emulthree button
options commented, as normally done by mouseconfig / Xconfigurator, but
just doesn't have them (or with more whitespace in the comment), then
mouseconfig doesn't add these options even if you enable emulatre 3 buttons
in the TUI.
It would be better todo a wildcardsearch for these options and remove any
lines containing them and then just blindly add them again (commented or
not depending on the users choice), this will also work with custom
XF86Config files, like mine.
trond, please see if you can fix this.
The XFree 3 parser tries to be clever and preserver options:( - I would rather
have them running Xconfigurator... the alternative is rewriting that part of
the code to do like the XFree 4 version: Don't care about what is in the
existing file, just write the current values.
