Mapping the mouse thumb button under Ubuntu

  • This tutorial showed me how to identifuy the button I wanted (8)
    www.gizmodo.com.au/…r-hardware
    (watch out because the page uses something like markdown which has garbled – and quote characters)
  • But it didn’t show me how to make it double-click.
  • This might be useful, but it is old:

  • If you simply want to disable or re-assign a basic button, try:

  • My button order was:
    left middle right wheel-up wheel-down wheel-left? wheel-right?
