Hi guys. I checked out and used the following wiki page to get my back/foward mouse buttons to work. It didn't work.
I have a Logitech M510 mouse. The back/foward buttons work in Chrome, Firefox and Midori but not Epiphany. How can I get them to work? I tried the following:
Thumb Buttons - Forward and Back Note: The following maybe redundant depending on whether xev detects all your mouse buttons correctly (functions can be mapped on a per-app basis) or you want to change the default behaviour. To do this we need to map keystrokes to the desired mouse buttons and install xvkbd and xbindkeys. # pacman -S xvkbd xbindkeys In most modern applications which use back/forward features, XF86Back is mapped to back and XF86Forward is mapped to forward by default. On most MX mice the thumb buttons resolve to 8 & 9. If your mouse is different, check button numbers using xev and replace the numbers used in the example (b:8 & b:9). So if you have an MX mouse you would create the file ~/.xbindkeysrc, containing: # Mouse Buttons "xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[XF86Back]"" m:0x0 + b:8 "xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[XF86Forward]"" m:0x0 + b:9 Now to test... Run the following command and if it works as expected remember to add xbindkeys to .xinitrc or somewhere where it will be executed each time X starts. Also, this should work with Epiphany and Konqueror without any additional configuration or use of imwheel.
Then I tried the xmodmap tweaking and that still didn't work. I'm not sure what to do next. I am starting to use epiphany more and more because firefox formatting isn't accurate on some sites I go to. Epiphany renders it correctly.
When I add the device settings in xorg.conf, it wont allow me to start X. No screens found. My xorg.conf is blank other than what I was shown to put in there from the wiki page. So I'm completly lost.
