Thread: Logitech MX700 Wireless Mouse Nav Buttons

    Logitech MX700 Wireless Mouse Nav Buttons

    I have a Logitech MX700 wireless mouse and was wondering if there is a way with xorg.conf to configure the 'forward' and 'backward' buttons on the side to enable me to navigate with Konqueror and Firefox? I already set up the ZAxis Mapping for the scroll wheel but am not too sure I will be able to use the other buttons... Thanks!

    vwgtiturbo, I edited your post to include the URL into the Logitech MX700 as opposed to this long link listing.

    This is a link to How-To make your Logitech mouse work more precisely. It will come in handy.

    Also to make the forward, and backward work you'll need to run the following command, or put this in your .xinitrc in your /home/user folder.

    xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"

    Re: Logitech MX700

    Thanks for editing the link. I had no idea how to do it, so I had to do it the ugly way...
    You know, I must have been tired last night when I wrote this, because I woke up this morning, and after reading your post, I thought "Man, I should have been able to find something". I did a Google for 'logitech mx700 linux', just to see if I was retarded, and lo and behold, the first hit gave me the answer. Sorry for wasting your time Skynet, I must have been out of it.
    Onto other things... I looked for the '.xinitrc' and I don't have one in my user's /home directory, however I do have two elsewhere in the system:

    /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
    /etc/X11/xfce4/xinitrc

    Is /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc a global setting? If so, won't the system use this if an .xinitrc is not in the user's /home directory?

    I edited my post above, just adding a few words to the subject. I figured it would be easier to find with a site search. Also, it was a little misleading, as I am sure that you could use the answer provided here for other mice with similar buttons...

    Yes it's a global setting, and the system will use it if it can't find a local .xinitrc in your /home directory.
