I am completely new to Ubuntu 13.04 and I do not have much experience using terminal. However, I would like to assign the "zoom" button on my Performance MX mouse to show workspaces... I find the particular button worthless for actually zooming in and out. I also want to assign the "application button" to "spread windows" (at least what it is called in the unity tweak tool).

How do I go about changing these settings permanently?

Of course, Logitech would have to provide a driver. Here is a discussion of using your hardware under Ubuntu: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2146373

Using the mouse is quite easy (as the main buttons work out of the box)... but assigning special actions to the buttons is not –  Christian August Sep 7 '13 at 3:50
