How to get scancodes from mouse buttons?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Hi all, first off I must confess that this is a crosspost. I posted a
similar question to the Debian list, but it's not getting very far and
I know that there are some smart folks here who could probably help.

I have a nice new mouse with two extra multimedia buttons. When I try
to get the scancodes with "xev", "xbindkeys -k", "showkey", or
"showkey -s" then I see no output. There are some other functional
keys on this mouse which also show no output with those tools, such as
the side scroll feature, so I suspect that there must be _some_ way to
get the codes.

Other than Xev, Xbindkeys, and Showkey, what tools can I use? I
specifically bought this mouse because of the location of the two
extra keys, as I have a manual disability and cannot use the special
keys of regular mice.

This is the rodent:

However, 10 of the 12 buttons work, not just the 9 that it found. I've
tried to google a picture of the mouse, I see no info on Teac mice
even on the Teac website. The buttons are "zoom" buttons that I
suppose are activated by a Windows driver on the OS that the package
states that it "supports".

Thanks in advance for any advice on how to continue!
