sorry, replied too fast. in x, with '-m 8=2', button 8 is still button 8 but button 2 becomes button 12, leaving me with no button 2 at all. i thought i'd misunderstood the man page, so i set '-m 2=8', but that again makes no change to button 8 in x while button 2 stops sending anything at all.

i'll leave it for a while as i'm replying too fast. if someone could tell me how to test mouse buttons in the framebuffer console (like i can with xev in x), i'd be grateful.

Linux? I used ext4 for a few years. In proportion to the time spent using it, I lost as much data to it as I lost to the very worst released version of reiserfs.
