My friend has a problem with the use of his additional mouse buttons.
He uses SuSE 8.2(KDE 3.1.1).  Its mouse is an Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer
xmodmap -pp returns:

    There are 7 pointer buttons defined.

    Physical        Button
    Button          Code
        1              1
        2              2
        3              3
        4              4
        5              5
        6              6
        7              7

It is to be converted e.g. pressing the lateral key in KDE-Instructions (like
closing windows...).
Can someone help it?
 I read that you can make it with .Xmodmap and configure afterwards in KDE the
keyboard instructions.
Is it possible to do this easier(out of KControl)?
If not, how can he do that exactly?
How have the entries for the Xmodmap to be?

Thank you,
Dennis Schridde
