I have a mouse with the usual two buttons, roller wheel and also two buttons on the left side one on top of the other. I would like to add actions to the press event of the roller wheel and the two buttons on the side. Is there an app for recognizing all the buttons? Thanks.
The press event of the wheel is the middle button click, and should already be recognized as such. I have a number of mice with the same configuration, and all work, with all buttons functional just by plugging them in, or turning them on. Some have both side buttons on the left side, while others have one on each side. They work as forward and backwards for both browsers and file managers here.
I did nothing to activate the extra buttons, they have just worked with both the liveCD and all my installations. My mice are from either Microsoft or Logitech, some having PS/2 connectors, some USB, and two are wireless. The Logitech wireless mice also have a tilting scroll wheel, for horizontal scrolling. A friend has a similar wireless mouse, from Kensington, and his works out of the box also.
