    When I plug in the apple mouse and go to mouse settings it lets me configure not only the two clickers, but all the extra buttons on my mighty mouse. However, I hate the mighty mouse scroller, so I want to switch to a new mouse. However, when I plug in the new mouse it only lets me right click, left click and scroll. My other mouse has 2 extra buttons I want to configure to open quicksilver and Expose all windows (like I had setup with my apple mouse). Can I do this with a non-apple mouse?

    Yep, just go into Expose/Spaces pane and set it up there.

    Or download Steermouse for truly complete control over your mouse. Awesome app.

    Duff-Man says...or alternatively, you can get USB Overdrive - I've used it for years with assorted multi-button mice and it has always done the job and never caused me any grief....oh yeah!
