Remapping buttons in Linux

You can use the following command to remap the buttons:

xinput set-button-map <device-id> <button1> <button2> <button3> ... <buttonN>

The <device-id> is shown in the xinput list output as Logitech USB Receiver [XExtensionPointer] - you can use the name as a string or the id number. You can query the actual button state using xinput query-state <device-id>.

The mouse has following button-ids:

Button ID
Left mouse button 1
Right mouse button 3
Wheel button 2
Wheel up 4
Wheel down 5
Wheel left 6
Wheel right 7
“Up” button 9
“Down” button 8

See remapping mouse buttons on what buttons X11 recognizes.

According to this the default configuration (xinput set-button-map <device-id> 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9) already gives the correct button assignment. If you prefer to swap the thumb buttons so that “Up” is Thumb1 and “Down” is Thumb2 you can do this using the following command:

#                       input id: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
xinput set-button-map <device-id> 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 9 8
