First Contribution to Linux Mint Community

Not really a big one, but it’s a contribution none-the-less.

I recently started using Linux Mint Debian as a desktop again, and my new Logitech Performance MX isn’t getting fully utilized.  The advantage of having a back/forward button on a mouse is huge!  Not being able to use them natively is sad.  Not only is the Cinnamon mouse preferences panel pretty limited, but there isn’t much in way of cli tweak to make it happen.  That is, until I remembered using ‘xev’ long ago.  So, I started hitting zee Googles, and found the write-up I linked in the following post.  http://community.linuxmint.com/hardware/view/16313

Now, I have back/forward, and all is happy again!

Sticky Rubberized Keyboard
