Binding a command to a mouse-button #x
Launching programs by clicking extra mouse-buttons is somewhat straightforward to get going if you install xbindkeys and xbindkeys-config.
Hm, for some annoying reason xbindkeys doesn't work if I start it from the Startup Applications (it runs, but nothing happens when I click the mouse button). If I start it from an xterm later, it works. Gah.
To avoid spam many websites make you fill out a CAPTCHA, or log in via an account at a corporation such as Twitter, Facebook, Google or even Microsoft GitHub.
I have chosen to use a more old school method of spam prevention.
