    Erm, I'm not sure but you might want to change the line that reads
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    to
    Option "Buttons" "7"
    and I think in kde at least there is a setting in the kde-controle-center that lets you use both these buttons, but i'm not sure.

    I'm not sure about you firefox problem though.

    ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP COPY OF YOUR XORG.CONF FILE BEFORE MODIFYING IT!!

    You would be amazed how much suffering in the world could be averted by that.

    In the Screen section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, you'll see a line that says Default Color Depth. Note what depth it is and take a look at your Display subsection with the corresponding depth. Add "1280 1024" to that line and restart X.

    Amarok and Juk are both pretty good for your media player.

    If you want to change resolutions you should be able to do it via ctrl+alt+ the + and - keys on the numpad. this will take you through the res in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (
    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480
    EndSubsection
    -- add resolutions you don't have to the file).

    You could try amarok from here: http://www.linuxpackages.net/search_...me=amarok&ver=

    Install it with pkgtool. I don't know if there is a Slackware package for Juk.
