changing button mapping with xinput does not work after Jaunty upgrade

Bug #366887 reported by akincisor on 2009-04-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xinput (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xinput

I have an Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3. In intrepid I used the command:

xinput set-button-map "Kingsis Peripherals Evoluent VerticalMouse 3" 1 8 2 4 5 6 7 3 9

to achieve the buttom mapping I liked. This no longer works after upgrading to Jaunty.

xinput get-button-map "Kingsis Peripherals Evoluent VerticalMouse 3"

shows output

1 8 2 4 5 6 7 3 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 10

which shows that the buttons should be remapped, but in practice they are unchanged. Using xev, only the first 5 buttons (left, middle, right, scroll up, scroll down) register. The other two buttons are not detected.

Hi ubuntu+launchpad,

Please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (and maybe Xorg.0.log.old) file from after reproducing this issue. If you've made any customizations to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf please attach that as well.

This bug doesn't affect me anymore since July. I suspect it was fixed by an update in the interim.
