I don't know how kde's "bug arbitrage" works, but comment 2 should have led to
an action item. kst at kde.org is not the correct assignee, this bug needs to be

With regard to the topic in question, I have comments. The fundamental problem
lies in qt, which refuses to support the X11 button press/button release events
which are emitted with "big-numbered" buttons. Since KDE tries to use qt as a
wrapper for native mouse I/O (X11, win32, etc.), it needs to be done there.

This bug, asking for a GUI to remap the buttons, depends on bug 34362 (the bug
to actually IMPLEMENT all these "extra" buttons). Once the buttons are
supported, it's very easy to provide the GUI -- we'll just be creating GUI
programs to put wrappers around the "xmodmap" program.

Gestures are related, but they're not implemented in the same way. I understand
why a user would expect them to be together, but they should probably be as two
separate little programs: first map your buttons, THEN define your gesture
