Microsoft 7-button Optical mouse - OH NO not again
I've tried ImPS/2 (That's the default RedHat picks when you choose the mouse in the Gnome-GUI) and ExplorerPS/2.
I changed XF86Config with 'Options "Buttons" "7" ' and I believe this is ok because xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5 " doesn't complain anymore, while it did when there was no Buttons entry in there before.
The problem: testing with xev seems my side buttons are just button 2 and 3 (just like the middle and right button). How can i make them button 6 and 7 ? (in other words : I still only have 5 buttons!)
Noteworthy this is a USB mouse on a Laptop (IBM ThinkPad T30) with Red Hat... 7...
You need to use imwheel to set the other two to different stuff. See if this helps:
