Unhappy Logitech V400 Laser Mouse Driver?

Hi everyone, I am new to linux. I have logitech v400 mouse. This mouse has 4 additional buttons. I am confuse how to utilize those buttons because there's no logitech driver for linux. Those additional buttons are very useful for me and this mouse would not be valuable anymore if I can't use these buttons. Please help me. I am ubuntu 7.10 user. Thanks!

system > preferences > mouse

suda opt-get install logitech-applet
sudo apt-get install mdetect
... the first one is a cli tweaker for logitech mice. The second generates the appropriate xorg.conf stuff for your mouse.

Usually you need something like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "V400"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Buttons" "9"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Resolution" "800"
Option "Name" "Logitech USB Receiver"
Option "HWHEELRelativeAxisButtons" "7 6"

previous thread on this subject here.
... I can only say, you were warned!
