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.

I upgraded to Firefox 0.8 from Firebird 0.7, and now my extra mouse buttons don't work. I am using a Logitech MX500 optical USB mouse. Namely, the Forward and Back navigation buttons don't work. Well, technically they work, but the Back button now functions as page scroll up (e.g. scrollwheel up, keyboard up arrow) and the Forward buttons acts as a scroll down function. They worked in FB 0.7 and they still work in other applications (Konqueror, Mozilla 1.6, Epiphany, etc). Does Firefox 0.8 map buttons independently from X or what's going on? Is anyone else experiencing this?
hmmm... this didn't show up when I searched. Anyway, I tried it, and now the back/forward buttons on the side of the mouse don't work at all in Firefox (not even as up/down arrow functions). Any ideas?
maybe try without emulate 3 buttons? doubt it will help but anyway.
try backing up your /etc/X11/imwheelrc and then move the .imwheelrc from your home dir, renaming it to imwheelrc. Then the idea is you'll have only one conf file, with only the two options ".*" and "(null)". this knocks out a few variables, until you can figure out whats wrong.
Have you used xev? what key/button codes do the thumb buttons and wheel return?
If correctly set up the thumb buttons will register "alt" and "Left" or "Alt|L" (for the back button) when pressed, in the xev terminal output.
well the problem is to do with imwheel methinks, because the buttons are being reported by x, so the Xconfig part is fine, but theyre not being bound to the key combinations you want. Thats imwheel's job.
what version of imwheel are you running? (imwheel -v)
can you see any errors/msgs in the X logfile to do with imwheel or xmodmap? because i had problems with imwheel not starting properly...
also, just curious, y dont u just use
exec imwheel -k -p -b "67"
