map buttons usb mouse

Postby adishardis on Fri May 13, 2011 6:35 am

Hi everybody,

I'm on my maybe fourth try on linux and decided to go with Mint 11 rc. I'ts always something that makes me go back to windows but I really want to migrate to linux so here goes...

I've got two problems right now; driver for nvidia 310m and mouse button mapping. I haven't really gotten to the nvidia problem yet so I'm wondering if anyone could help me with the button mapping.

My device is a usb Logitech M505.

On previous tries i've successfully managed to map the button via xmodmap or something but I can't seem to remeber exactly what I did.

I want to make the left tilt on the scrollwheel to go back and the righttilt to go forward.

Any ideas?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Have you performed a search for 'logitech' in Synaptic Package Manager ?
