Make Kensington Expert mouse behave [solved]

I am tring to get my shiny new Kensington expert mouse to behave properly in Linux with no success. I require the top button on the left (button 2) to correspond to a right click, the right most button (button 6) on the top to cirrespong to a left click, and the right nost button on the bottom(button 3) to correspong to a middle click. (I don't know what to do with button one the left most button on the bottom. Maybe a left click lock..)

I have tried xmodmap with no success and can't get the above configuration using xorg.conf directly.(my ideal method of doing this.)

Here is my xorg.conf file:

# File: xorg.conf
# Section "InputDevice" 
#    Identifier  "Mouse2"
#    Driver      "mouse"
#    Option      "Protocol"      "MouseMan"
#    Option      "Device"        "/dev/mouse2"
# EndSection

    #Section "InputDevice"
	#Identifier  "Mouse1"
	#Driver      "mouse"
	#Option	    "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
	#Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
	#Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
 # EndSection
   Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "evdev"
        Option          "SendCoreEvents"	"false"
       Option          "Protocol"              "evdev"
       Option          "Dev Name"              "Logitech USB Receiver"
       Option          "Dev Phys"              "usb-*/input1"
       Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/event3"
       Option          "Buttons"               "10"
       Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5 7 6"

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier      "Generic Mouse"
       Driver          "evdev"
      Option          "SendCoreEvents"        
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/event1"
   	 Option 	 "Dev Name" 		 "Kensington Kensington Expert Mouse"
	 Option 	 "Dev Phys"		 "usb-000:00:02.0-3/input0"
     # /dev/input/mice can emulate plain PS2, ImPS/2 and ExplorerPS/2;
        # only this one supports more than 3 buttons + scrollwheel:
       Option          "Protocol"              "auto"
        # scroll wheel
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "5 6"
        # four real buttons and the scroll wheel:
        Option          "Buttons"               "6"
	Option		"ButtonMapping"		"6 2 3 4 5 1"
        # This bit's optional; it configures button 4 as a sort of 'lock'
        # button, so instead of holding down one of the other buttons you
        # first press button four then click the other button:
 #       Option          "DragLockButtons"       "6"
Ware wa mutekinari.
Wa ga kage waza ni kanau mono nashi.
Wa ga ichigeki wa mutekinari.
