[edlug] Support for mice with > 3 buttons?



Is there any way I can use all 5 buttons and the scroll
wheel on my mouse?

The system is configured for a USB MS Intellimouse
(which it is) and the 3 main buttons and scroll wheel
are all usable. Using xev it appears that the extra 2 buttons cause the same states and button numbers as the
middle and right buttons. Is there way of (a) getting
discrete states/codes for the extra buttons and (b)
mapping them to useful actions

This is RH8.0 FWIW.

Thanks,

Ed
