I just switched

Well I like the touchpad but prefer a mouse. So I hooked up my Logitech MX518. All is fine except one thing; I cannot program my two extra buttons for back and forward nor for dashboard. Anyway to do this? I realise that this mouse has no supporting drivers... so?

Thanks

Sure - there are drivers for it from the Logitech site. Works great and lets you reprogram all of the buttons as needed.

Sorry man - I thought they had a driver for it.

You may try this one:

It's for the Mx510 - it may work.
