Thanks by your suggestion, "evil ppc"!
...I'll try to get a nice one from any local store.
Anyway, back on the days when IRIX started to support wheel mouses (using Nekonoko's hack, and about a year and half ago) I've tried to use a brand new Genius NetScroll+, but it resulted killed by the experiment, and the O2 resulted hanged on boot, requiring the jumper-trick to reboot again; so, I guess this time I'll avoid Genius devices... I could not tell you what failed these time... but these mouse never worked again no matter if plugged on SGI(s) or PeeCees. Affortunatedly it was a very cheap unit...

I'll look for a better unit next time! ;)

squeen- Please do include it :-). I was going to clean it up a bit and add some more Irix app preferences in the rc file, but school prevented me from resuming work on it today, but I think tomorrow I'll have time so expect a few more mods before I'm done with it but feel free to put in nekoware anytime. Do you think I should I fashion it into a tardist?

generatriX- Hmm I had that same problem with my O2, but the mouse worked after a few replugs. Maybe it's an O2 thing? Good thing the Genius mouse was cheap... ;-)

When you get things the way you like them, I'll be glad to help you with the nekoware style tardist building or coaching. I think the most important parts, besides the working executable & patch, is the release notes text file that describes your build process for future updates/rebuilding.

Thanks again!

Thanks squeen! Sorry I was out for a while due to projects and finals, but it's summer time now! I might hit you up here for some help with package manager sometime soon (I'll PM you), but please feel free to include imwheel in nekoware in the mean time.

Many thanks to evil ppc for porting this. Not having scroll support in fm has been a complaint of mine forever.

I noticed as soon as I installed the right-click on the desktop behaved differently. The right click menu only appears for a split second then goes away. Not a big deal but wanted to mention it.

{SPIN}- Thanks for the bug report. I'll check that out and let you know what I find (since it is now cool enough in the evenings to run my Onyx2 :-)). Thanks again!

Spin- I can't get this to duplicate on my machine, can you provide some more info?

An recommendation for a "most SGI-like" wheel mouse, anyone?

I've put imwheel in /usr/bin, and copied imwheelrc into my root directory. I then type imwheel -k, but nadda!

Anything else I should be doing?

I had the same problem Spidy, wouldn't work for me either.

Spidy, Arti77-

Put imwheelrc in your home directory as .imwheelrc. Then run imwheel -k. To get it to launch at each login add it to your login script. Make sure you enabled scroll wheel support with systune first. If these steps don't work let me know!

squeen-

Hehe... I think it's my inner Mac user but I found a nice mouse that matches the charcoal sgi keyboard and my Sony flat that works well with Irix and looks good overall it is model MO32BO. It has clear portions with a nice blue. I recommend it :-)

It's the systune bit that confuses me. How do I do that exactly.....reading the man now, but.......?
