This is what I do. If I need macros, I'll just write that into my WM...I'm not sure if there's a better way for people who aren't handy with their WM.

I thought so, so you should use udev/xinput for the buttons. This would be an extremely excellent guide though for buinding on the fly, or something a less advanced user would use. I was pretty sure udev/xinput work because I swear I had to map mouse buttons before. During the xorg "transition" to xinput, POS transition periods. Now they get detected correctly, so no worries. lol

Your mouse buttons are auto-detected? Mine still aren't as of Fedora 15...

Could you link me some good reading on udev/xinput?

Yeah you can set udev to do a bunch of stuff, Jimi probably knows more. =P I've always had my mouse buttons detected, I also use Logitech every time. I <3 Logitech, the best mice/keyboards I've ever used.

Indeed, they are solid product. Never owned a keyboard of theirs though, sadly. Was gonna get one this time around but decided to pull the trigger on my first mechanical, a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate, and man is it nice!

I'll have to do some reading up on the udev stuff when I have some time. Kind doubt that though with college classes starting back up again in a month.

LOL Yeah, I'm finally deciding to go back. MMMMM Bio/Chem!!!! I'm going to be overwhelmed with HW too. =( I'd just use your scripting method, it'll allow for better customization. That and Linux has a problem with changing standards a lot... I love linux, I just hated going through all these "transition". LOL
