Hello, I don't really know where to put this. I have just upgraded to KDE SC 4.11 and now are my special mouse buttons >3 'dead' (but scrolling works). I'm using xbindkeys to map two mouse buttons to Kwin actions but now xbindkeys can't anymore recognize the buttons. Try it: "xbindkeys - k" (opens a test window for input). In KDE Plasma 4.11, I can press the two extra mouse buttons and nothing happens. "xev" is also deaf on these mouse buttons. This comes when I press B9.: --- EnterNotify event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001, root 0xbb, subw 0x0, time 840276, (7,173), root:(2320,1385), mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyAncestor, same_screen YES, focus YES, state 0 KeymapNotify event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x0, keys: 4294967227 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --- BUT it works just fine in TWM: xev: --- ButtonPress event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1e00001, root 0xbb, subw 0x0, time 187573, (121,176), root:(752,962), state 0x0, button 9, same_screen YES --- And xbindkeys -k in TWM: --- Press combination of keys or/and click under the window. You can use one of the two lines after "NoCommand" in $HOME/.xbindkeysrc to bind a key. "(Scheme function)" m:0x0 + b:9 (mouse) --- My first attempt was the Arch Linux forum but no one could help me there. I think it is a bug. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try a special mouse button outside of KDE with xev 2. Press special mouse button in KDE with xev 3. xev cannot recognize the button running in KDE.

I fixed this: Removed the "b:9" from .xbindkeysrc, started xbindkeys, put the lines back in, restarted it and ... now it works. Maybe a strange cache problem. For anyone having this problem as well. It was nothing KDE-concerned, sorry.
