As long as you only need simple button reassignment (as opposed to complex things like assigning commands to button combinations, or configuring different mice differently), the venerable xmodmap (a core X11 utility) can do the task. For example, to swap buttons 2 and 8 out of 12: xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 8 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 10 11 12' Arrange to run this ...


See the note one the bottom on how to disable the middle mouse button. This should work on any system using X. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Input This does not disable scrolling if you want to do that see here:http://onethingwell.org/post/8779215052/reverse-scrolling-x11


I think the OP may want to meddle with the "modes" of the devices somewhere in GIMP's own options. There are things like whether the stylus or the mouse/etc are working in the entire screen or only within a window. IMO it seems that the problems come from something being in a window-only mode, which seems rather pointless and even probably extremely ...


The answer to this was the Teensy board. I ordered the Teensy 3.1 with the WIZ820IO and the WIZ820_SD_ADAPTOR, this worked a treat. A very useful piece of hardware. Thank you @Rob


Try out this one... gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf If you have no xorg.conf file create an empty one. Add something similar to this and play around with the parameters. Section "InputClass" Identifier "Touchpad" Driver "synaptics" MatchIsTouchpad "on" Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on" Option ...


first step is to find out what the physical buttons are. I will describe the process of remapping a generic gaming mouse, in my case a saitek RAT3, but the general steps will apply to any mouse. xinput list to find out the ID of your mouse, and it's name xinput query-state {id} to find out the state of all buttons. Use this opportunity to count your mouses ...


if you just want to run bash command in xterm on mouse click (or wheel event) you can try this example: $ echo -e "\e[?1000h" $ while read -n 6; do echo hellowworld; done this is for wheel event (for click set 12 instead)


Believe it or not, my totally tech-naive partner solved the issue by changing the mouse. I still cannot fathom how the old mouse worked selectively in applications and stopped to work in the desktop environment, but here we go.


You can hold the Shift key to use the normal mouse selection while xterm mouse-tracking is enabled. That works in all terminal emulators that I know (xterm, vte (like xfce-terminal) or rxvt-based ones). In vim specifically, mouse is normally not enabled by default in terminals. So there's probably a set mouse=a somewhere in you ~/.vimrc or your OS-supplied ...
