Kubuntu Karmic Koala freigegeben

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Friendly_Female_Koala.JPG

Ubuntu 9.10 AKA "Karmic Koala" wurde heute freigegeben.
Mal wieder ein Release, an dem ich nicht soo sehr aktiv mitgewirkt habe, aber immerhin eines, dessen Bugs mich am Ende sehr geplagt haben.

Eine Übersicht der neuen Features gibt es auf ubuntu.com.

Auch Planet Ubuntu ist voller Screenshots und Release-Posts, u.a. deswegen von mir jetzt auch nicht viel mehr.. ;)

Zum Download geht es hier - und wer lieber Kubuntu (basierend auf KDE 4.3) möchte, geht hier entlang.

HAL configuration for Kingsis Peripherals Evoluent VerticalMouse 3

To configure my Kingsis Peripherals Evoluent VerticalMouse 3, I've added the following fdi (HAL configuration info) to /etc/hal/fdi/policy/evoluent-verticalmouse3.fdi:

XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.mouse">
      <match key="input.product" string="Kingsis Peripherals  Evoluent VerticalMouse 3">
        <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">evdev</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.Emulate3Buttons" type="string">no</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheelButton" type="string">0</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.ZAxisMapping" type="string">4 5</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.ButtonMapping" type="string">1 2 2 4 5 6 7 3 8</merge>
      </match>
    </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>

The most important part (for me) here is ButtonMapping: by default only the wheelbutton triggers middle click, but since it's rather hard to press (and I use it often for pasting), I've mapped it to the middle button on the right side, too.
Also, the thumb button becomes "Back" (in browsers) and the lowest button on the right triggers the context menu.

Update: This was meant to included in Ubuntu Karmic (see bug 451729), but then got removed again (not everybody liked it).

Update^2: for udev (which is used solely since Ubuntu Lucid), I've transformed it into the following file (which you can store as /etc/udev/rules.d/90-local-xorg.rules):

Code:

ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
KERNEL!="event*", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
 
ENV{ID_INPUT_MOUSE}!="1", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
ENV{ID_MODEL}!="Evoluent_VerticalMouse_3", GOTO="xorg_local_end"
 
ENV{x11_options.Emulate3Buttons}="no"
ENV{x11_options.EmulateWheelButton}="0"
ENV{x11_options.ZAxisMapping}="4 5"
ENV{x11_options.ButtonMapping}="1 2 2 4 5 6 7 3 8"
 
LABEL="xorg_local_end"

(see also https://wiki.kubuntu.org/X/InputConfiguration for more information)

Update^3: This is bugged in Ubuntu Lucid.
