Does anyone know a utility, that would let me se mouse events in human
readable form? I recently bought a new mouse, which moused reports as
having 16 buttons, and xmodmap -pp reports 15 buttons.
As far as I can see, it doesn't have 15 or 16 physical buttons. If I
count the wheel as two buttons, I get 8 or possibly 10:
left & right (two buttons)
pushing the wheel (one button)
scrolling the wheel (two "buttons")
tilting the wheel left or right (two "buttons", which I guess are
intended for horizontal scrolling)
and a thumb button (one button)
There are also two buttons, that increase or decrease the resolution of
the mouse, but I don't think those generate any mouse events.
I'd like to find out which button is which, so I can install an actual
xmodmap that I'm happy with.
