Things I Can’t Do In Ubuntu…yet

Filed under

Although I’ve been using Ubuntu every day, reading websites and magazines, and even listening to podcasts, there are a few things that have eluded me. These aren’t major obstacles, but I sure would like to figure them out - most of these I’ve posted about or mentioned them in passing.

I’ve resolved to work on at least one a little bit every day, and hope I make a breakthrough. However, here they are for now:

9 Mouse Buttons with Logitech G9

I can’t get the scroll wheel tilt left/right working. I’ve read some instructions, but if I change my mouse driver in xorg.cong to “evdev” (which seems to be a common step in all the places I found), then my graphics card gets goofed up!

I have spent a lot of time on this with little results - the best I have managed is to get the wheel left lean to report the same button as the rear thumb button.
