Cant bind mouse scroll wheel in Suse 11.1

Post by Grans Remedy » Tue Jul 07, 2009 7:32 am

Howdy,
BZF Client is 2.0.12 on Linux (Suse 11.1). I'm using the standard Suse 11.1 version of BZFlag from the repositories; I have not compiled from source.

My mouse is a standard Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical (wired-usb), which works fine in all other applications in KDE - ie scroll wheel up/down scrolls content.

For a change, I decided to try out the scroll wheel for firing.

The in-game menu does not recognize the scroll wheel. If I try to map the wheel down or up to fire, nothing shows up in the menu. However left, right & middle mouse buttons are detected (when pressed) and can be used.

So, I tried editing my config file directly. Looks ok, but scrolling still does not fire in game.

It seems like the client is not recognizing the scroll wheel.

Can anyone shed some light on this?
Cheers

Is this an SDL or non-SDL build of BZFlag?

You could check the dependencies for the package in your package manager. Or you could also see if the binary is linked to SDL by doing something like this on a terminal:

Code: Select all

ldd `which bzflag`

I checked the dependencies in Yast, (Suse package manager) but couldn't find anything for SDL. And likewise ldd - nothing obviously SDL - but output below just in case 8)

Doesn't look like you have an SDL build then. You'd have to build from the source package. And of course, make sure to get the development packages for SDL so that it builds with that. ;)
