I've got a mouse with a thumb button that xev shows as button 9. I'd like to map it to be the same as a middle click (which, according to xev, is button 6). How do I do it? I'm using Ubuntu Jaunty.

Thanks!

I think you'll be able to get this working with an xmodmap tweak. Have a look at the Mouse section in the Ubuntu Community documentation, especially the entries for the Multi-buttoned Mouse and Logitech Marble Mouse USB.

You'll also find this article on changing mouse buttons through xmodmap useful.

From this I got to this link, which right at the top shows what needs to be done: fvue.nl/wiki/Configuring_my_5-button_mouse_in_X_Windows – abyx Aug 18 '09 at 11:02

There are a ton of tutorials for this out on there on the internet.

This one is Ubuntu specific : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ManyButtonsMouseHowto
