I am running Ubuntu 16.04 and have connected Logitech M705 mouse. This mouse has a total of 10 buttons, button 1 being left click, button 2 right click, button 10 "thumb button".
I have set up
# History Back & Forward "xte 'keydown Alt_L' 'key Left' 'keyup Alt_L' " b:6 + Release "xte 'keydown Alt_L' 'key Right' 'keyup Alt_L' " b:7 + Release # page down "xte 'key Next' " b:8 # page up "xte 'key Prior' " b:9 # powerclick "xte 'keydown Control_L' 'mouseclick 1' 'keyup Control_L' "
This all works very well. What I call
powerclick is used to open links in FF in new tab.
Now what I would like to achieve: when I click button 1 THEN button 10 THEN I select some text and I release both buttons, text should be copied into clipboard. So kind of a quickedit mode for any window, as soon as text is selected this way, it is copied.
# quickcopy "xte 'keydown Control_L' 'key c' 'keyup Control_L' " b:10 + b:1 + Release
But this does not do the desired effect.
Is there a way to map such complex conditions? I can imagine this being of a great use, considering that the "thumb button" might work similarly to Ctrl key on keyboard, i.e. to modify standard click behavior.
Later Id like to make Paste function for button 10 (thumb button) + button 2 (Right button)
