    Dell Wireless keyboard and Mouse Configuration ****
    I have a wireless bluetooth dell keyboard and mouse.
    The part number is 310-7990.
    I'm running 10.4 on an awesome little macbook.

    The mouse and keyboard both work with mac's built-in bluetooth flawlessly with no drivers/installation cds.

    However I need to configure the mouse's center button as "Back" "Forward" buttons for safari-surfing and it has technically 7 programmable buttons on the mice that must get configured.

    Dell's support site was atrotious b/c I couldn't find the "service tag" (an utterly preposterously annoying idea for self-help service tech support that does not work)

    Soo...the question is "How do I configure said mouse". Thanks!

    Give SteerMouse a try. It will allow you to assign buttons that the stock OSX drivers will not allow.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks a million!
    Dtravis, thanks man. I've been looking for, apparently, steermouse for a LONG TIME. Thanks for directing me to that program. I gotta key into macworld (4 mice) more frequently. How long has it been around? lifesaver with sensitivity and all programmable buttons. Thanks again.
