I have the same mouse but no back/forward functioning buttons. I looked but do not seem to have an xorg.conf file. I guess I could create one from the above code but as a NooB have no idea where to put it.

Could you tell me where to put it. :lol:

So, what changes do you make to the file to make your "fully operational Mouse"? I'd like to have the two left side buttons on my Explorer mouse be forward and back (and if I could get the wheel button to be double click , that would be nice, tho linux doesn't seem to use double click like windows does.)

georgeg the reason you get any response to this is that it is one of "my threads" (and one of Boo's). We check our postings regularly, but don't expect a "normal forum member" to note that something is added to a thread that's more than two months old...
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
