In windows I used X-Mouse Button Control to accomplish this, but I can't find a method of doing It in linux.
My main mouse is a logitech m510 which has two thumb buttons on the side, which are buttons 8 and 9.
the closest i've gotten is by using xbindkeys and xte.
#scroll-up-attempt "xte 'key Up'" b:9 + Release #scroll-down-attempt "xte 'key Down'" b:8 + Release
But I want continuous scrolling when I press the button, not just one key movement when I press and release the button... Help?
