[edit] Introduction

There has been a lot of discussions on the net about how to get the 16 button MX Laser mouse working. Here is my setup and links to other online sources. I've tried a lot of the described solutions and couold not quite get any of them to work quite right. However, they gave me enough information to solve the problem myself. This is configured on a Mandrive 2006.0 install with X server updated to 6.9.0 rc2 from Seer Of Souls webpage.

[edit] Notes:

I use KDE and have my system configured to run a startup script that configures a bunch tools. Part of this script is to execute
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
to configure xmodmap for the scroll wheel.
