This is from the hardware forums . . .thu I believe that you donot need the iwheel program for the wheel....cause it works with just the right configuration of XF86Config

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes you can use the side buttons. I've just finished setting up my five button optical mouse after reading this post this morning and doing a bit of googling on the subject.
First you need to set up your mouse in XFree86 (version 4.2.0 is what I use), this is my pointer section,


code:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then you need to do "xmodmap -e "pointer 1236745" I have a script in .kde/Autostart to do this when ever I startx but you can put the line in your .xdefaults as well.

code:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/sh

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

Once you have verified that your wheel works you can test to see if the extra buttons are seen by X with "xev" (place the pointer in the square and click the buttons to see the events).
Next you need to download and install imwheel (1.0.0pre1) and create .imwheelrc in your home directory with the following,

code:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
".*"
None, Up, Alt_L|Left
None, Down, Alt_L|Right
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next start imwheel with imwheel -k -b "67" I use another script in /kde/Autostart for this as well,

code:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/sh
imwheel -k -b "67"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
