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.

I am having a couple of problems with my install of linux.
First, my mouse. I have a Logitech cordless mouse. It has 4 buttons. I am ony able to get the right and left buttons, and the wheel, to work. I would like to bind the thumb button to alt-leftarrow, so I don't have to keep clicking the back arrow in mozilla. How do I go about doing that??? While searching these forums I have come across the xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4" command. As I understand it that tells X that there are 4 buttons. What I need to know is how to go about binding actions to 3rd and 4th buttons.
Secondly, my sound card. I have a Creative Soundblaster Live. It works fine BUT I am unable to control the sound levels for the rear channel, bass or treble. If I open up the mixer I am only able to control the sound levels for the front, main, channel and PCM.I can however change the volume if I go through the YaST hardware control thinngy. Is there anyway for me to control the rear, base and treble from the mixer????

Are you getting any audio out of the rear jack? I had that problem before and it was because of drivers. I have a SB Live card but it works best with audigy drivers (I was using the emu10k drivers before).
Yes, I am getting sound out of the rear channel. But, the only way for me to hear it is if I go into the YaST control center and configure my sound card. There I can set the levels for bass, treble and the rear channel. I would like to be able to do that via the mixer.
In regards to whansards reply about my mouse problem. How do I find out the names of the mouse buttons??
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
i could only guess at the names of the mouse buttons.
i found that config i posted, from the web. you might
search the mozilla site.
i might try mouse1 Mouse1 MOUSE1 or so on
you did see that was a file in the mozilla directory right?
i think the name of the file was the first line.
