    Middle Mouse Button


    Hi,
    I have a Logitech Performance MX mouse and i'm running Xfce+Compiz+Firefox all i want is for the zoom button to emulate a middle mouse button.
    I've searched all over for a solution nothing works not xbindkeys not xte not xdotool...
    Like in windows i want that button to open new links in tabs and offer page scrolling in Firefox.
    The button code is 13 i.e. b:13 i can see it's clicking but it doesn't work in firefox.
    Please help.

    If you run xev, does it recognize all the buttons when you click/scroll them? It's a pretty fancy mouse, comes with fancy Windows setup software that may do fancy tricks. You may need to mess with /etc/X11/Xorg.
