After a lot of playing I got my mouse to work at last. My nice mouse has
been plain for years! But now all 8 button work!
Problem is that when I roll the mouse button I get a page forwards or back
in firefox and other programs.
When I move the scroll wheel sideways the text scrolls up and down. This is
What is wrong and how do I fix it?

Logitech rx1000 (no it is not an mx1000) It has 8 buttons normal 3 plus
scroll wheel and tilting scroll wheel and one extra on top.

This is the Xorg.conf that finally got the mouse to work!
