Thanks for this how-to, now I can use the forward / back buttons on my MX700 in Konqueror too . I have a couple suggestions though. I haven't read the whole thread (just the first post which is all I needed) so I apologize if any of this has been suggested or mentioned before (I assume any modifications would be in the first post), but do you really need to restart the machine? You can issue a
to restart udev and detect new rulesets / hardware, and then just start xbindkeys manually for the current session. Also you may want to put in there for the KDE folks to get xbindkeys to start automatically, you can do the following:
sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart
1. Create a startup script
2. Insert this into it
3. Make it executable
Once again thanks for this easy to follow how-to, my buttons all work now.
chmod +x start-xbindkeys
EDIT: I almost forgot, for my MX700 I'm using the USB --> PS/2 adapter that came with it, so the output of
for me was "PS2++ Logitech MX Mouse" instead of "Logitech USB Receiver".
