FC13 Logitech LX 6 Mouse Extended buttons

Hi everyone,

I was trying to set my LX6 mouse to use Back/Forward under FC13 X86_64 using instructions from http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=82361 instructions, but it din not work .
I couldn't start xbindkeys.

The mouse have 7 buttons, but xev is reporting that back/forward are 11/12.
Here is how my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file ended up like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Name" "Logitech LX6 Cordless Optical Mouse"
Option "Resolution" "1000"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ButtonNumber" "12"
Option "Buttons" "12"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7 8 9 10 11 12"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"

And /.xbindkeysrc.scm like this:

#Action back
"/usr/bin/xvkbd -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]""
m:0x0 + b:6

#Action forward
"/usr/bin/xvkbd -text "\[Alt_L]\[Right]""
m:0x0 + b:7

And still no results.
Can anyone help me sort this out?
