Help binding mouse buttons to keyboard buttons
I have the MX1000 mouse from logitech and I followed the guide on ubunutu forums to get all the buttons working. The buttons give some input, but I can't bind them in games in games or in teamspeak. In enemy territory, they all get picked up as KP_= and Teamspeak blinks when I press them, but it doesn't let me bind them. So I would like some help binding them to some out of the way keyboard buttons to ensure detection in game. I have the AMD64 version of kubuntu linux.
I was looking to bind the 3 thumb buttons and the scroll buttons(not the wheel).

From cat /proc/bus/input/devices

It's been over 3 weeks & no help. I don't understand why -- your Q is well phrased & you trimmed the output data to the relevant essentials.

The only thing I can think of is your choice of forum. You are allowed to request the thread be moved to a different area, where it might get better exposure. Perhaps Hardware?

In any case, you make the request by reporting your own post.

I have MX1000 Laser attached to my suse 10.1 x86_64 laptop but unfortunately I don't play games so I can't help you there.

I also found the following useful in getting my tiltwheel working , both on my touchpad middle north-East-South-west button and on the MX1000 0nly my adjustyments in Firefox mean that the side (thumb) buttons forward and back scroll a page horizontally rather than the tiltwheel!
