Can someone help me to get my forward/back buttons working in FC5 with my MS IntelliMouse? It's a plain one with just the 2 regular buttons, a wheel and a forward and back buttons.

I have seen lots of posts around here and tried lots of settings with no luck. Can someone tell me what I need to use for settings in my xorg.con and imwheel script (if needed... supposedly it's not)?

Here are my current settings:
from xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

Also my mouse.sh from the /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d dir:

#!/bin/sh
# /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/mouse.sh
# Required for the configuration of a 5-button mouse
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
imwheel -k -b "67"
.imwheel.rc file from home dir

".*"
None, Up, Alt_L|Left
None, Down, Alt_L|Right


What that configuration, the two side buttons (back/forward) function the same as the left mouse button. Also, using the mouse wheel up performs a 'back' action in firefox and down performs a 'forward.'

Thank you very much for your post. Everything is now working perfectly. For anyone else reading this post here are the changes I have made:

The mouse section in my xorg.conf looks like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

I have also removed my mouse script (which I added to try other solutions from other posts) So there is NO call to imwheel and no xmodmap call.
