I use this in my /home/username/.bashrc for my LX7 which has the same problem.

Code:
xbindkeys
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 7 6 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20"
Then with the xbindkeys installed in my /home/username/.xbindkeysrc

Code:
"xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]""
b:8
"xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Right]""
b:9
"xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Right]""
b:6
"xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Left]""
b:7
If you don't have the forward and back keys then you don't need the 8 & 9 lines.

what you did bind's the "left" and "right" keyboard keys to the buttons, but left and right dont scroll left and right...

i think the problum is i setup in xorg.conf that the core pointer is the touchpad, so thge xmodmaps setting it set to the touchpad and not to the mouse... so i'm trying to figure out how to make the xmodmap talk with the second mouse
