By default most distributions don't let you use all the buttons of your mouse, especially if you have one of those MS 5 button types like I unfortunately have.

The following should let you use all of those buttons...

go to the "InputDevice" section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Replace the section with this code

Code:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "Buttons"   "7"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection


You need to run the command xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
Best to put this in a script in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/ so that it runs on every restart of the machine. Make sure the script has been chmod u+x so that it's an executable.

This might be a stupid question but is it possible to install Linux software onto Cygwin.

I currently have Cygwin + 3.1.4 KDE installed on my Windows XP box. I've downloaded a tar file of the Java J2EE SDK v1.3.1 and installed it using the following command provided on SUn's website:

tar xvzf j2sdkee-1_3_1-linux.tar.gz


After following a few easy instructions for setting env vars, it doesn't work?

I don't know if it won't work because it is a port of the linux OS or if i am doing something wrong?
