Hi Teodoro,

xev outputs those buttons without a keysym, i.e. "button 8" and "button
9", though these mice are actually 6- and 7-button. The models are:
A4Tech N-708X and A4Tech X-748K. All of the buttons seem to be
supported as button 8 and button 9 work in a browser as move back/
forward in history.

Putting Button8 and Button9 here[0] doesn't work and seems it only
recognizes the first three buttons.

xbindkeys(1) is something I would go with probably but I expected
something default like xmodmap(1) or a xorg.conf.
Best regards
