View Full Version : 5 button mouse
08-13-2005, 12:51 PM
I am using a logitech X 310 usb optical mouse and only the two default buttons + scroll are enabled. i use the two side buttons for internet navigation all the time and find the lack of this functionality very annoying... Can someone help here?
Google for Xmodmap:
On my system I had to create a file named .Xmodmap.:0.0 in my home dir.

Thanks! Im am going to have a look into this.
But this is one of those things hardware detection must take care of. who will want to use PCBSD if only 3 button mice are detected by default?
More work for you here Kris! :D

edit XF86Config put in
