MS IntelliMouse Explorer Problem

  1. I'm having trouble getting all the buttons for the intellimouse explorer to work with the scroll. I'm running Gentoo 1.4rc1. I can get the scroll to work when I set ' ZAxisMapping "4 5" ' but the extra buttons won't work. If I set ZAxisMapping "6 7" in my XF86Config file, the scroll in apps like Mozilla won't work. Is there any way to get this working as well as all the buttons?

    Hello Kyred, welcome to Techspot forums!

    Have you defined the number of buttons in XF86Config? Not just ZAxisMapping but "Buttons" in the same section?

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I have everything set correctly. Here it is.

    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
    Option "Buttons" "7"

    I thought I heard a while ago about a program that can fix this, but I can't find it anywhere. And thanks for the welcome!
