How to Map Logitech MX Revolution keys in Linux Mint

By | October 7, 2013

btnx is no longer available on newer Linux Mint (probably Ubuntu too) releases. This is a working alternative.

Install easystroke:  

sudo apt-get install easystroke

A new icon appears in notification bar. Open the application. In Preferences->Additional buttons add the buttons you want to configure. I need the thumb scroll to switch between tabs – forward, back and close. So I add the three buttons.

In Actions tab, I mapped the new buttons to their keys (CTRL+Tab, CTRL+Shift+Tab, Ctrl+W). It seems I can not map the buttons as strokes before adding them as additional buttons. The on-screen notifications can be disabled in the Preferences tab.
