Does anyone have any idea what could be going on? Could this all just be a limitation of trying to use xkb with a bluetooth mouse?
I can't help you, but I am very interested in this problem. I have an
old gaming mouse with additional buttons I'd like to bind.
Perhaps there is a way to do this without the keyboard? There must be
a way to define a new button for a mouse. Or perhaps there's a way to do this without X.
Yes there is, but for that to happen the signal received must be a button signal. Your old gaming mouse should work just fine if you follow instructions in .
The N700 is a bit of an odd case because the signals its sending out are odd (see my original email). I doubt your gaming mouse does that.

Yes, my mouse doesn't actually have that problem, although I thought it did.
However, I do have a special key on my laptop that would normally activate a proprietary menu on the factory Windows install. `scankeys` reports it as a series of codes instead of a single code, so I can't reassign it in GNOME.
