Thanks, thats awesome and i have been able to remap most buttons.

Though what i dont understand is, having remapped the mouse buttons to cut, copy, paste, delete and change the 'right mouse click' to a different mouse button works within a text file or web browser for example. But they are not always working everywhere. Eg remapped the 'right mouse button click' (used shift + F10) to a different mouse button is not working on the ubuntu desktop though it works in a text file or in a web browser,

My entries in the .xbindkeysrc file -->

Evoluent Mouse controls

Control+c Copy, Evo mouse button 2 press event

"xdotool key 'Control_L+c'"
b:2

Evoluent Mouse controls

Control+x Cut, Evo mouse button 3 press event

Control+v Paste, Evo mouse button 4 press event

"xdotool key 'Control_L+v'"

Evoluent Mouse controls

Control+d Paste, Evo mouse button 6 press event

"xdotool key 'Control_L+d'"
b:10
#

Evoluent Mouse controls

Right mouse click to open menu, Evo mouse button 5 press event

"xdotool key 'Shift_L+F10'"

I have to test more, but any ideas how to get the right click working?
