    Perfit mouse support for buttons 6,7


    I'm running fedora 5 and noticed my Forward/Back buttons didn't work. All the other buttons and the scroll wheel (assigned to buttons 4,5) seem to work fine. Here is the mouse section of my xorg.conf-

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Buttons" "7"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

    I can't seem to get the buttons 6 and seven to be recognized. When I run xev, it says they are buttons 2 and 3. TIA

    Thanks. I used that section as a model and made one tweek - the Protocol needed to be "auto". It's working now.

    For the record, this mouse is known as

    "Perfit Mouse Optical" and "Contour Mouse"
