Problems with Logitech MX610

I have this section in my xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Logitech MX610"
        Driver          "evdev"
        Option          "Device" "/dev/input/mx610"
        Option          "Buttons"        "20"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 7 6"
        Option          "Resolution" "800"
but no horizontal scrolling. it just doesnt work, not in kde or gnome or firefox or anything else. the middle button is also inconsistent (sometimes it pastes text, sometimes I can click with it)

I have been using xbindkeys, with a slightly modified .xbindkeysrc [probably for a MX1000]

"xvkbd -text "\CV"
  m:0x10 + b:8
"xvkbd -text "\CC"
  m:0x10 + b:9

"vlc -f"
  m:0x0 + c:153

# Previous track
"vlc -r"
  m:0x0 + c:144

# Play
"vlc -p"
  m:0x0 + c:162

# Stop
"amarok -s"
  m:0x0 + c:164

# Volume +
"amixer set PCM 1+"
  m:0x0 + c:176

# Volume -
"amixer set PCM 1-"
  m:0x0 + c:174

# Mute
"amxier set PCM toggle"
  m:0x0 + c:160

# Thunderbird
m:0x0 + c:236

The only 2 that always work is the volume. The mail button works in kde (it launches thunderbird). in gnome it always launches evolution even before I started messing with drivers and the xorg.conf (how do i change this?) the backward and forward buttons dont work either. they appear to do something, when I hover an icon it changes colour when I press one.

so how do I unbind/change them from gnome, and get them to work with xbindkeys. like find out the real c:'s for it even. is there a program that will dump what c: is sent when I press a button?
