    Hello, everyone. My name is Joe, and I am new to Linux, coming from the Mac world. I have a Logitech M500 wired mouse, which uses the scroll wheel as a middle mouse button. This is a pain for me to use, so I want to use one of the side thumb buttons as a middle mouse click.

    After some searching on the all-knowing internets and some fiddling around with XEV and Xbindkeys, I am afraid I am still lost. I was able to find out the the button I want to use, when pressed, is listed as button 8.

    How can I map button 8 to register as a middle mouse button?

    Thanks for any guidance!
    Joe
