Ubuntu - Side buttons with Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical


Tested working under Ubuntu 6.10 With this enabled, you can go backward and forward under Firefox (and probably other apps).

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add :

Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7 4 5" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

sudo gedit /etc/X11/Xsession.d/63xmodmap (this is a new file) and add :

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7" BINARY=$(which imwheel) $BINARY -k -p -b "67"

The line “Option “ZAxisMapping” “4 5"” was already present in xorg.conf
