Binding a command to a mouse-button #x

๐Ÿ• ๏ธŽ - 2010-06-06

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.
