    Default USB Mouse: HP Wireless Optical Mouse

    USB Mouse: HP Wireless Optical Mouse
    HP Product Number: P5304J
    UPC Code: 8 08736 63463 2


    I'm running Linux (Mandrake 9.1). When I added this new
    USB mouse and rebooted, the system recognized this as a
    "USB Wheel Mouse". The mouse is mostly functional,
    Left button, Right button work as well as the ability
    to move the cursor.

    However, is there anything I can be done to take advantage
    of the other mouse parts:

    - the "Scroll Wheel"
    - the Middle Button (Scroll Wheel press)

    HP doesn't recognizes the existence of anything other
    than Windows.

    Thanks.

    No, this was not a rash purchase. :) It fell in my
    lap gratis.

    hi I don't have the info in front of me, but most of these issues are just
    configuration. You need th change the mouse driver in your X config file.
    You also need to correct the file with the correct number of buttons for
    your mouse and add a ZAxisMapping entry. You may also need to add a XModMap
    entry to get X to recognise which buttons are what on the mouse. The scroll
    wheel is actually a set of buttons so configuring it is easier than you
    might think.

    the best thing to do is look around the net for this info. I would also
    check out the forums at www.gentoo.org as I remember seeing quite a bit of
    discussion about this there. Although I cannot say if they talked bout the
    HP mouse in particular.

    good luck
    Derek.

    Your 2 line sample worked like a charm.

    By the way, the mouse tracks just as nicely
    as the Logitech MX700 cordless optical mouse.
    I wonder if they share the same guts... no matter,
    works just great.

    Thanks so much for the help.
