    Unhappy Logitech MX510 >> Front and back buttons >> no worky :(
    hey guys, I'm using Logitech MX 510 on Mac OS 10.4.5.. I remember using the same mice on Windows XP Pro and Forward/back(for webpage browsing) buttons worked flawlessly without any drivers.. But they seem to be dormant in Mac OS .. Do i need special Logitech drivers to run them?

    please help.

    alright, Installed the Logitech MX510 control center thing.. I can assign diff functions like keystroek, cruise, open app, etc etc.. But no flip web pages back and forth option.. Oh c'mon! thats what those buttons were invented for.. Logitech sucks! :mad:

    i use the mx310 and have the buttons assigned just fine. it took a little tweaking though. for the forward and back buttons for browsing you want to assign keystrokes.....
    this may be weird to explain and if you need help i can just take a screen shot of how i have it set up on my logitech control screen

    for browsing back a page assign the keystroke of the apple button (to the left of the space bar) and the [ key

    lemme know if that made any sense. :dummy:

    my apple is bling *tisk tisk, you shouldn't have any bling.. just nice things*
