Thread: Map mouse buttons to keyboard shortcuts

  1. #1

    Default Map mouse buttons to keyboard shortcuts

    I want to make use of extra buttons on my Logitech RX1000 mouse.
    For e.g. the zoom button I would like it to show windows on my desktop (ctrl+F9).
    I've fired up xev and found out that this is button 8:
    Code:
    ButtonPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x4e00001,
        root 0x1ad, subw 0x0, time 144424906, (175,0), root:(179,636),
        state 0x10, button 8, same_screen YES
    Then I've added to ~/.xbindkeysrc:
    Code:
    "/usr/bin/xvkbd -text "\[Control_L]\[F9]""
    + b:8
    But that doesn't work at all. What could be the problem?

    Try the tips I gave in another thread:

    "Present Windows" as mouse button shortcut

    It works, thank you!
    Although you need only xbindkeys, not xautomation.
