I have a gaming mouse (specifically Genius DeathTaker) and its Windows driver. The configuration app (e.g. setting the meaning of the buttons) runs fine under wine. However, when I click "Apply", nothing happens.
I believe it has something to do with the fact that wine does not "see" the mouse at all.
I found out that there is a folder for mapping devices from Linux to wine. So
ls -l ~/.wine/dosdevices/
has the following output:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 10 Jan 22 19:38 c: -> ../drive_c lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 10 Feb 15 16:23 com1 -> /dev/ttyS0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 10 Feb 15 16:23 com2 -> /dev/ttyS1 lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 10 Feb 15 16:23 com3 -> /dev/ttyS2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 10 Feb 15 16:23 com4 -> /dev/ttyS3 lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 1 Jan 22 19:38 z: -> /
Next, I found that if I do
and start moving the mouse, I see characters appearing in my console. So I read this forum post, but even after that I don't know what to do.
