btnx-config(8) GUI configuration tool for btnx


btnx-config (needs to be run as root)


btnx-config is a GUI configuration tool for btnx. For example, you can configure an extra mouse button to send a Ctrl+Alt+Right command to switch workspaces. This is especially useful for mice with more buttons than Gnome or KDE can properly handle, or mice that need evdev and a 100 step howto to register button events at all.

When using btnx-config, remember to set the buttons you want to use to "enabled" and restart btnx after configuration changes. For commands to be run, you have to set the full path.

btnx-config is required by btnx to work, because btnx-config also detects your mouse and its buttons. This combination should work for just about any mouse.

You need to run btnx-config and use it to configure btnx at least once, before the btnx-daemon can successfully start.

For further information see the help of btnx-config itself.
