I am a newb to the Linux OS, but I'm not helpless
Microsoft® Trackball Explorer and Mandrake Linux, I have it attached via USB port, however, I can not use my 'back' and 'forward' buttons any more, Basically, for those of you unfamiliar with the peripheral device, it is essentially a 5 button mouse, with a trackball, and the 2nd mouse button being a wheel. I have the wheel working but I would really like to get the other two buttons operational... if not as 'back' and 'forward' then as something else.
I have gone through the K Menu --> Conifiguration --> Config Your Computer --> DrakHardware --> Mouse..
However, the only options available to me are max three buttons.
Distro: Mandrake 9.2 ( LILO Dual Boot with winXP )
Desk Enviro: KDE 3.1
System: Dell Inspiron 4150, 1.7 P4-mobile, 256mb RAM, 30GB HDD, ATI Radeon 7500 32 MB.
Anyone come across a solution I would be more than happy to recieve it. I've searched through google/linux and I couldn't find anything... seperately I checked mandrakes own hardware support page to no avail...
