Mouse buttons problem

Postby nelamvr6 on Sun Sep 07, 2008 5:59 am

I have been using the Main Edition since Celena, but I just got done installing the latest beta of XFCE and I LOVE it!

But I'm having a small problem. well, I should say that I hope it's an easy problem to fix, but it is really a big deal to me...

I can't get my mouses thumb button to work. It's driving me crazy not having the "Back" function for web browsing.

I have tried everything that worked in the standard Gnome Main Edition, I have changed the Mouse section of my xorg.conf to look like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
EndSection

But it still doesn't work.

Any help will be much appreciated.
