Autostart command not working properly

I have my mouse setup with imwheel so that I can use all 7 buttons. Problem is that when I start up the wheel and the buttons are swapped. I have xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5" and imwheel -k -p -b "67" in home/.kde/autostart/.xinitrc but it doesnt work. Every time I boot up I have to go to a command prompt and type the xmodmap command again and then it works fine. Anyone know why this doesnt work or a better way of doing it?

Try using the KDE configuration tools. One is in the start menu and is called control center. The binary is kcontrol. The other is available if you right click with the mouse pointer on the desktop. A pop up menu will appear. You can select configure desktop. There are applets in these programs to configure mice.

Mouse control

Yes but they dont have the extra buttons on the mouse. They only configure 2 button mice with scroll.
