How do I get the extra side buttons (6 and 7) on my Intellimouse Explorer working?

Are you able to bind these extra keys to anything under Keyboard Preferences? – nisshh Jul 31 '12 at 10:41

Depends on what you want to do with it I guess. At least with Compiz and CCSM (Compiz Config Settings Manager) there are some things you can use those buttons for.
