I use 4 different mouse/trackball for my workflow on my Windows desktop and I struggle to replicate my config on Fedora 33.
Key detection issue
So the first issues is on my trackball it’s a Elecom Huge ( M-HT1DRBK) the pointer works, as the left click and the right click but the forward/back button don’t do anything, this The trackball is supported by the kernel (hid-elecom.c)
Key mapping & mouse/trackball configuration
Basically i would like to be able to configure of the mouse/trackball independently of each other and for the application that i’m runing. ( swtich to the next virtual desktop on gnome when i press fn2 when the cursor is over the taskbar, them make a combinaison keystroke when virtualbox is use… etc)
So for what i have search xbindkeys don’t work on wayland an i have two possibility :
- “swaynagmode” form “sway” enable the possibility to emulate keyboard shortcut from the mouse.
- Hawck My best option i guest… but honestly i will prefer a GUI and more “native” solution them write lua script…
Sensibility by device
The last issue is the cursor speed, gnome set the same speed for every devices, and i have to play with DPI button on the different mouse/trackball.
Thanks in advance for reading me
