    Default BTNX not working

    Hello,

    A year ago i made this post, and with the help of others found a solution to make the mouse + btnx working (RAT 7 MMO). The old link is here : https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...use-issue.html

    Now, i installed 13.1, did the same thing, and the mouse is not recognized by BTNX. The mouse works, all buttons are visible in xev | grep button, however if i go on BTNX and press Detect Buttons and Mouse nothing happens, nothing get's detected. Can someone help me fix this issue ? The only thing i saw different was in xorg.conf where the protocol used was IMPS/2 so i changed it to auto, but still nothing. Any ideeas ?

    Regards,
    Radu

    Cmmon guys, we can safely assume it's been over a year and still no responce . What could cause BTNX to not detect the mouse ? For example, if i press a key on the keyboard during the recognition, it sees it imediately (as a mouse of coruse). Just point me in the right direction and i will start digging from there.

    Regards,
    Radu

    I assume "BTNX" is the 3rd Party button extender software for the mouse??

    If so, try installing the RPMs for openSUSE 13.1 from opensuse.org
    found here

    software.opensuse.org:


    Note that these are NOT officially supported packages, so you're on your own if there are issues.

    i know they are not officially supported, however last year we solved the issue, and that post had over 2k views afterwards (ppl with the same mouse). How about we try and solve it now again ?

    Well, it is holiday season for many people, you will have to be patient :-)

    On the other hand, the people that do those repositories surely will accept bug reports. It is not
    official support, meaning support from the (mainline) distribution, but it is something.

    Have you tried installing/using the latest 13.1 RPM from the software.opensuse.org/package/btnx page?
    Here is the link:

    software.opensuse.org:

    Does it not work?

    it is clearly not related to BTNX, i've been trying to explain that from the start. Samve version, built on 12.3 works. Build on 13.1 it dosn't. Same mouse and all. Tried those from the repositories and same thing. The mouse does not get detected. However, the keyboard does. I'm just wondering why is that ? why is the keyboard beeing detected and the mouse not. Let's troubleshoot, but starting from where ?

    BTNX sees the keyboard if i press any keyboard on it as

    Vedor ID : 0x06a3
    Product ID : 0x0728

    Why can't it see the mouse ? Should i modify something in xorg.conf ?

    currently xorg.conf is :

    And yes, in case you were wondering, arguing alone on forums does help. Just posting the lsusb and the Vendor id and Product Id from BTNX in the same page made me realize that i can just search for the config file and manually input the data for the mouse (taken from lsusb). And of course now everything works . Thx for the help
