Xorg config for mouse buttons.

Now I haven’t actually checked this but trying to get some of the buttons in the infernal GAMBIT meshing program is quite tricky. If you’ve never used GAMBIT try not to.

Anyway to get some of the buttons to work you appear to need a mouse button six or seven to function. Add this to your xorg config file somewhere to make your scroll wheel return those buttons.

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse[3]"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "InputFashion" "Mouse"
Option "Name" "USB-Mouse;IMPS/2 on USB"
Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
EndSection

Now bear in mind I haven’t tried this but it may be of use to you….
