RAT 7 Problem

Asked by Frederik Schönfeldt

Yeah, I've just installed my Ubuntu 12.04 on my new Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G..

And I noticed, that my RAT 7 mouse doesn't work, I mean: At the first time, it works perfectly but suddenly I don't have the control of any windows. The typically "fixxes" on xorg.conf seems not to work. :-(

Here my current Xorg.conf content:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Mouse Remap"
        MatchProduct "Saitek Cyborg R.A.T.7 Mouse"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 0 0 0 0 0"

// Sorry for my bad english. :-DD

Try this:

cd usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/

Now, create this file:

sudo gedit 910-rat.conf

Add this lines:

# Cyborg Mouse R.A.T. 7 for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Extra Buttons)

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "R.A.T."
        MatchProduct "R.A.T.7|R.A.T.9"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "Buttons" "17"
        Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 0 0 8 9 7 6 12 0 0 0 16 17"
        Option "AutoReleaseButtons" "13 14 15"
        Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"

# Save and reboot

gksudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/910-rat.conf

Instead, and add the text

gksudo is to be used for GUI apps, not sudo
