help for intellimouse explorer back/forward buttons [SOLVED]

i know this sounds stupid, but i've been trying to get functional back/forward mouse buttons for quite some time now...

i followed the wiki, but to no avail. all i could get is back/forward functionality with the scrollwheel (!) ; any other tricks or combination of tricks would eventually fail (no scrolling, no back/forward functionality).

if you have a working configuration for this, i'll be glad to take a look at you config files and any relevant script that can make it work (xorg.conf, imwheel and xmodmap-related stuff).

thx

Re: help for intellimouse explorer back/forward buttons [SOLVED]

heres what my xorg.conf looks like. has always worked for me.

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "USB Mouse"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option         "SendCoreEvents" "true"
    Option         "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option         "Buttons" "7"
    Option         "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
EndSection

Re: help for intellimouse explorer back/forward buttons [SOLVED]

ok, i added the following :

Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"

and now it works !
in addition it seems xmodmap is no longer required with this config !

many many thanks for the quick and relevant response scarney !
