Hi there!

For the mousewheel you need to add the following line to the mouse-section in your X-Servers config file ( /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/xorg.conf):

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Looks strange to me, but works perfectly.

I own the big brother of the MX510 ... up to now I never cared about the other buttons, but it would be nice, if you share your expiriences with setting them up... maybe I or someone else gets infected :-)

Greetings, Sascha
