Does anyone have mouse hotplug working with "evdev" input driver? Some posts on Xorg mailinglist have led me to believe that this is currently impossible. Using the "mouse" driver with "ExplorerPS/2" protocol however seems to work for me, probably due to the fact that I use /dev/input/mice, which stays available even when my USB mouse gets disconnected.
I think it should be mentioned that the evdev driver isn't at all necessary to get the thumb buttons working in Firefox/Nautilus, at least not for a Logitech MX518. You can simply follow the instructions under Post Configuration -> Konqueror. imwheel will do the trick, without the hassle of modifying all the entries in your xorg.conf. ~Thayer.w -- Wednesday, 04 July 2007
