Happy to report the steps outlined by evil ppc and the link neko provided (along with a reboot), have solved my problems.

I am now scrolling with the best of them. :D

Spidy- Great to hear!

I just noticed, whilst working with imwheel that the preferences widget displays the display class for any selected window hence providing the name used to create custom minimization icons. Very cool extra use!

I'm willing to help out with a tardist as well if you can supply the source patches. This is definitely a package that would be welcome in Nekoware.

Neko- I'm glad you like it and appreciate the help. Everyday I've had free time to work on Irix ports it has been > 100F and hence too hot to boot the Onyx2. As of right now (since I'm new to the porting business) I just manually edited the source files. Could you tell me how to/point me to a good source to create a patch? Once I do that I can see about making a tar dist. A few weeks ago I played around with the package maker program and it seemed useable, so between you and squeen I should be able to do this. Thanks again!

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.


I get the same behaviour, the right click menu doesn't stay up if you keep the mouse button down or just click it briefly.

This is only on the desktop. If I navigate to the desktop folder (.desktophost...etc ) and right click on the CDROM to get the eject menu it works.

No problem. Creating patches is really easy; the following will grab all of your changes from a source tree and compile it into a single patchfile:

Code: Select all

diff -urN old_source_tree new_source_tree > patchfile


old_source_tree would be the original, unmodified imwheel source and new_source_tree have your changes in it.

Or if there's just one changed file you can diff it like this:

Code: Select all

diff -u file_old.c file_new.c > patchfile

Sweet! I'll give that a go. I didn't realize it was so easy. Thanks neko!

ruckusman,
I've got the same behaviour, but when I switch to "point to type" into "window settings" its o'k'. It only happens when I use the "click to type" keyboard focus. A really strange behaviour. evil ppc we need help on this, can you try it. Cheers

ihalatch, others- Alright I've duplicated the bug and am working on a fix as well as a real tardist version to go in the offical nekoware. I'll keep this thread updated!

...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! ;)


evil ppc wrote: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... ;-)



Hi, Evil PPC! ...well, I guess I'm the kind of guy that never gives up... :D
Now, about a year after after my post, I have to say that I've tried again with a newer Genius mouse on my Octane, and it works perfectly. The model is:

Genius
M/N: GM-04003P
NETSCROLL EYE

...and again, it was cheap as no other, almost as cheap as the one killed a year ago by the O2... but this time it worked! ;)

Just with:

Code: Select all

systune pcmouse_mode 1


...already did the trick.
Cheers, I guess now it is just time to try Imwheel!

Alrighty guys! I've been away from the forums for far too long, and I promised neko the source diff file an eon ago. I was way too busy with grad school stuff and moving, etc, etc. I'll give that diff file to neko today or tomorrow- then it'll be official nekoware. Hold me to it!
