btnx: Button Extension


btnx - Button Extension - a GNU/GPL mouse tool for GNU/Linux


/etc/init.d/btnx start|stop|restart


btnx is a daemon that enables rerouting of mouse button events through uinput as keyboard and other mouse button combinations. For example, you can configure an extra mouse button to send a Ctrl+Alt+Right command to switch workspaces. This is especially useful for mice with more buttons than Gnome or KDE can properly handle, or mice that need evdev and a 100 step howto to register button events at all. Actually btnx integrates revoco, a program that allows changing MX Revolution's wheel behavior, but in the Debian version the revoco functionality has been removed because it doesn't have a clean license. btnx is best configured by using btnx-config, which is needed anyway. btnx requires btnx-config to work, because btnx-config also detects your mouse and its buttons. This combination should work for just about any mouse. You need to run btnx-config and use it to configure btnx at least once, before the btnx-daemon can successfully start.
