Mouse Config (MX1100)

Hey all. Just got a Logitech MX1100 Laser Mouse and it’s working great except for one thing… horizontal scroll (the wheel is a tilt wheel, so I should be able to scroll up/down and also tilt left/right).

Nothing is showing up as far as events go under xev for the tilting, so I am not sure where to start. Here’s the xorg.conf section:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Mouse[1]"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Buttons" "10"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option         "Name" "Logitech MX1100 Laser Mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
    Option         "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option         "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 7 6"

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Well, I’ve made some progress by changing the driver to “evdev” and the device to “/dev/input/event8”.

Now all the buttons do something (including the horiztonal titling). Now, though, I cannot make the tilting actually do horizontal scrolling, it is acting as a back/forward set (like the thumb buttons).

I managed to get this working with a combination of evdev, xbinkeys, and xmodmap.
