Default Mouse clicking not working correctly with X

Were you ever able to solve this?

I've tried modifying the ZAxisMapping to "4 5" as well as setting it to "0 0". Further I added a ButonMapping option with values "1 2 3 0 0" which should remove all scrolling. Neither was successful.

It appears I have the same keyboard & mouse (Microsoft Natural 7000).

Any clue as to how to get this to stop would be great.

Angry Update: not a problem with X (sort of)

So digging deeper, wsmouse is a serial mouse abstraction of our usb mouse. It's in this abstraction that the mouse click events are being incorrectly interpreted (due to flaws in the mouse design).

<p>The xev command will give you an idea of what's going on, what I'm seeing is a buttonPress/release event for button 4 that occurs 1-16 times BEFORE the correct button press.

Xorg is still accepting button 4 presses despite my attempts to make it ignore them using ZAxisMapping and ButtonMapping options in xorg.conf.

Your responses to the following thread:


...have been separated into a new thread. As the OP there has not logged in for several months, I suspect the OP will not be responding to your questions.

Although your questions may be similar to the original thread, the problem you may be running into may be different than the OP. Since most members of this site extensively search through the archive of old discussion, we ask members to keep threads on a single subject, single problem as directed by the thread's originator. When in doubt, start a new thread.
