Thread: Creating mouse shortcuts (xbindkeys and xte help)

  1. #1

    Default Creating mouse shortcuts (xbindkeys and xte help)

    I want the "search" button on my mouse to be a middle click.

    In my .xbindkeysrc file I have
    Code:
    "xte 'keydown Control_L' 'mouseclick 1' 'keyup Control_L'"
    #  m:225
    but it still just selects the google search bar on firefox.

    Using xev, it shows
    Code:
    KeyRelease event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x2600001,
        root 0xb4, subw 0x0, time 166414200, (1135,637), root:(1139,660),
        state 0x10, keycode 225 (keysym 0x1008ff1b, XF86Search), same_screen YES,
        XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
        XFilterEvent returns: False
    that means its seen as a keyboard button 225 right?

    I tried doing something like
    Code:
    "konqueror"
    m:225
    to test it, but nothing. Something is overwriting its function. In Configure Desktop > Keyboard & Mouse > shortcut stuff, and didn't see the search button used anywhere.
