    Question Get Nautilus to respond to the Back/Fwd buttons of my mouse

    Nautilus goes back and forward with alt-left and alt-right.

    Just like firefox only firefox responds to my corresponding mouse buttons.

    How can I get Nautilus to do that?

    If I can't get Nautilus itself to do that, I thought I could bind the buttons to alt-left and alt-right in CCSM. But I don't know how to enter keystrokes as a command.

    Any ideas?

    If you can't find a solution to this you may want to have a look at easystroke,
    which allows you to associate keystrokes to mouse gestures.

    I added this < xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7" > to Startup Applications. I have an Logitech mouse with tilting wheel. You can test in in gnome-terminal.

    I installed but it doesn't seem to allow associating keystrokes to mouse buttons.

    I tried in terminal
    Code:
    xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7"
    but nothing happened. What is it suppose to do?

    Open up easystroke preferences
    Expand additional buttons and click on the add button.
    Down the bottom, tick instant gestures.
    Click the mouse button you want to modify inside the box.

    Open the actions tab and
    add an entry of type key and put in your keystrokes.
    Click on record stroke and then click the mouse button you added and it should look like the second pic.
