You might try installing this package


and use that tool, which is called pointing-devices. It "exposes" more of
the settings than the simplified Mouse control. If it works for you, I
suggest putting it on the launcher so you can pull it up easily. If the
settings don't "stick" you can move it high on the launcher to make it
easily accessible via the keyboard.

If you do some Internet searches for "Kensington Expert Mouse Ubuntu 14.04"
you'll see some tips involving hand-editing various X settings so you can
use all the buttons. So presumably others have used them successfully!

Be sure to report back to the list when you figure out the answer, to help
the next person who comes along.
