2013-08-12 Page up and page down with a Logitech Marble on Linux

On Debian 7.x (Wheezy), I'm using the Logitech Trackman Marble. Mine has product number P/N 810-000767, a fantastic and long-lasting device. It has two small up/down buttons above the normal left/right buttons

I wanted these working under Linux, and give them the PageUp/PageDown function. I went the imwheel route, which involves the following steps:

1) Install imwheel with:

 $ sudo apt-get install imwheel

2) Edit the file /etc/X11/imwheel/startup.conf to enable imwheel when you log into KDE. Find the line that starts with IMWHEEL_START, and set it to 1.

3) Edit the file /etc/X11/imwheel/imwheelrc and at the bottom, add the following lines:

 , Thumb1, Page_Down
 , Thumb2, Page_Up

4) Logout and log into KDE again
