Found a link to the keyboard I have, Logitech MX1000 Cordless.


However changing The InputDevice section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restarting X
still doesn't help.

Section "InputDevice" 
 Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "Buttons" "12"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "11 12"
        Option      "Resolution" "800"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
        Option      "Name" "Logitech MX1000 USB PS/2 Mouse"

and adding the next line /etc/X11/Xmodmap
pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 4 5

Comment 3 Ray Curtis 2007-11-12 21:43:08 EST

Logitech LX 700
