In order to fix this, I have tried editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20mouse.conf. My current configuration is:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Zowie Mouse"
        Driver  "mouse"
        Option  "Name" "Kingsis Peripherals ZOWIE Gaming mouse"
        Option  "Protocol" "auto"
        Option  "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option  "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
        Option  "Buttons" "11"
        Option  "ZAzixMapping" "4 5"
EndSection%                                                                                                                                 


I originally tried with 9 as the value for buttons, as apparently the mouse up and down wheel count as buttons. I only changed it to 11 later just in case.

Anyway, does anyone know how I can have these mouse buttons detectable by programs? It would be very useful for some program functions, and others use them by default.
