Program Mouse Buttons

I was wondering how you could program your mouse buttons. I use a USB 2 button scroll wheel mouse. THere doesn't seem to be any options under system preferences>mice keyboard. I would like to make my wheel click= apple + left click. Thanks in advance

I use USB Overdrive. It's not free but shareware, but you can use it with splash screen. There are others around.
10 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Steve Jobs and Bob Hope...
Now we have no cash, no jobs and no hope.

No need for extra software to program mouse

1.System Preferences
2.Expose & Spaces
3.Click on the Expose tab at the top
4.The right column of tabs is what you can set your mouse to do when you click each button.

This site explains it with screenshots as well.
