Kensington Expert Mouse - Middle Click

by tecHunt   Last Updated October 22, 2018 14:01 PM

When using the Kensington Expert Mouse as is, the 4 buttons are physical buttons to LEFT, RIGHT, MIDDLE and BACK. To get both BACK and FORWARD a simple rebind is possible by adding an appropriate section to the xorg.conf (BACK -> FORWARD and MIDDLE -> BACK)

┌─┬─┐    ┌─┬─┐
│M│B│    │B│F│
├─O─┤ -> ├─O─┤
│L│R│    │L│R│
└─┴─┘    └─┴─┘

If I now additionally want a MIDDLE button the man pages mention the option "Emulate3Buttons", which emulates clicking MIDDLE by pressing both LEFT and RIGHT together.

My problem now is this: "Emulate3Buttons" emulates a physical MIDDLE button and since I had to map MIDDLE -> BACK earlier, I will just get another BACK button.

┌─┬─┐
│B│F│
├─O─┤
│L│R│
└\┴/┘
  B

How would I go about to end up with:

┌─┬─┐
│B│F│
├─O─┤
│L│R│
└\┴/┘
  M
