mouse problems

it should, i assume...
but while fiddling around to get my mx500-mouse work with all buttons, i
found out that not only xorg.conf is reponsible for mousetracking.
for example, for my logitech i had to use the command 'xmodmap' to map
the physical buttons to the right button codes... or so to speak.
so while i was happy to found some guides specifically for my mouse, all
i had to do was copy & paste without using my brain, which i really
enjoyed in this case :)

i think you should have a deep look into 'man xmodmap'!?

sorry for being not that much of a help
