Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Can you add those lines directly to these files /etc/X11/xinitrc
/etc/X11/imwheel/imwheelrc or do you have to create the text file for it to work? I did it directly into those files without creating new ones and now my wheel is all messed up (doesn't scroll up and down). The back button works but the forward button right clicks . There are buttons to the top and bottom of my scroll wheel that do the back and foward perfectly. But i want the side buttons to do it.
Well, I used the configuration you gave me. That got it the closest so far. The foward and back buttons work but my wheel up makes the page scroll down and the only thing i can see that wheel down does is highlight files (it's different that left click as left click actually opens the files). Apparently i don't have zev as i tried to run it but it gives me a command not found message.
