Logitech MX Four Buttons

Now a mouse.

I have got four-button-plus-wheel Logiech mouse.
Two side buttons work as back and forward.
I have been accustomed to use for that purpose (back, forward) left and right scroll button.
The two side (father top) buttons are for custom setting.

In OpenSuse Leap 42.1 it seems I am condemned to respect the Saint System will.
I have tried to find some human mouse mapping utilities for Linux and as a result I here became a bit discouraged.

Right, I should write on the hardware issue, not about me…

I would like to remapping some buttons - back-forward to left-right mouse scroll and be able to customize other buttons. Ideally as per application if possible. Ideally by the simplest gui method.

As, pardon, in Windows Logitech mouse setting window.

Hope this time I have manage to make myself pretty understood.
Thank you in advance as usual.

Hi
AFAIK, no GUI tools… have a read here for pointers: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mouse_buttons

One more thank you.
Well, I will if it can help me.
I am not certain but I think (if it a case) I have already seen some gui window for mouse button mapping.
Could it be btnx or something else wix an ‘x’ in its name?

Hi
You could try btnx and btnx-config from the hardware repo;
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/hardware/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/x86_64/

Thanks.
Yes, I could if only I know how to install it from there.

I have tried to add the above repository to YaST but I have an error message concerning URL.
I have done it via zypper but opening YaSt I have a warning about some error concerning that URL.

Hi
Just download the two rpms and install manually with zypper then cd to download location as root user;


zypper in btnx-0.4.12.1-1.1.x86_64.rpm btnx-config-0.4.9-3.1.x86_64.rpm

What repos do you have;


zypper lr -d

Thank once more.
Than was that I tried hard meantime but…: bash: cd: /home/ac/downloads/: **No such file or directory.
**Tried to change the first letters to capital : Home, Downloads. All in vain.I have to admit I am a bit tired of all those combinations.
I will try to adapt your solution.

Why YaST does accept the repo you had given above?

Finally I have found it here:
https://software.opensuse.org/search?utf8=✓&q=btnx&search_devel=false&search_unsupported=false&baseproject=openSUSE%3ALeap%3A42.1

Hi
There is no colon it’s cd /home/ac/Downloads

Yes, I sent you direct to the download location of the files from the harware repo. Sounds like you have tried to add the x86_64 direcory as your repo which is incorrect, that’s why I asked about the zypper lr info (to see what you put :wink: ).

Alas:

ac@linux-f1w3:~> cd cd /home/ac/Downloads
bash: cd: cd: No such file or directory
ac@linux-f1w3:~>

I am glad this time the culprit is not me :shame:!

PS
I have installed btnx, configured buttons and… HELP button does nothing. Shall help file be installed separately via another combination and several exchanges on the forum?


ac@linux-f1w3:~> cd /home/ac/Downloads
ac@linux-f1w3:~/Downloads>

As usual the issue between my chair and a screen. I will hang myself…

10 min past.

But before… I would like to have a look at Plasma 5.7 on my laptop.
If you where in my shoes how would you install KDE Plasma 5.7 (Opensue Leap 42.1 / KDE Plasma) from this repo:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Frameworks5/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/

Hi
I know nothing of KDE, best to start a new thread.

why cd cd ?
Just
cd /home/ac/Downloads
if ac exists.

As rectified on the precedent page I have notify my error (cd cd). That is why I am still alive.
