Ok, that's pretty straightforward. You could add the "pointer =..."
Hi Jan, sorry about the late response. I discovered that what I thought
is a 5 button mouse is 7 button. The scrollwheel counts as 3 buttons
(button, up & down). I found the Xmodmap utility and with:
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7 10 11"
statement to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Xmodmap to make it permanent without
calling xmodmap by hand or inside a start script.
I am able to page forward and backward in a web browser with a microsoftCheck the keycodes the keyboard delivers with "xev". You can map them to
trackball optical mouse. I am still studying a plan of attack for the
additional keysyms (e.g. Ctrl+Key) with xmodmap or start scripts
Then you especially need 3D acceleration. Does it work? Which video adapterspecific optimizations you may use. However, most of these optimizations
can be detected on run-time and are enabled automagically by the standard
This is one of the aspects of SuSE I appreciate. I will install X-Plane,
a flight simulator, which is resource hungry and need a fluid experience
do you use?
$ /sbin/lspci -v | grep -A1 VGA
No great improvements possible in boot time. SuSE offers and internally uses
It's an Intel 875 chipset which is about 4 years old. Intel made drivers
available for windows which unleashed it's potential in that
environment. The only difference I find in response between SuSE and
windows is boot time. I'll probably be fine and leave it alone.
a lot of default system services MS-Windows doesn't. Initialization takes
time. You could setup linux software suspend (to disk), it's much faster,
but depends on all drivers properly implement it. Drivers made by hardware
vendors (esp. VGA driver) often miserably fail here.
