5 button mouse

CentOS doesn't want to recognize the back and foward buttons on my USB mouse. If I use IMPS/2 it remaps them to the left and right buttons. If I use ExplorerPS/2 it doesn't recognize them at all.

If the scroll button on your mouse does not try adding the following lines to the mouse section in your xorg.conf file:

Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
