USB mouse extra side button


#1

USB mouse extra 2 side button not working. How can I enable these buttons?


#2

What are they used for? By default I think they navigate back and forward in a browser.
Does this not work for you?


#3

Yes they are back and forth buttons. They are not working for some reason. Is there a way to make it work?


#4

My forward back buttons are working out of the box.
But if your’s do not, or you have even more buttons you need to map, then there is three options I know of:
A: edit your ~/.xbindkeysrc file manually
B: Right click your Desktop->Desktop Settings->Mouse Actions
C: Install and use easystroke

However, since you just recently installed your system, you may try updating it fist, if you haven’t already.
Could’ve been a bug that was recently fixed.
