how to set autorepeat on mouse buttons

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – so the initial problem is the mouse wheel buttons are mismapped. I have a logitech M325 and the left/right scrolling is mapped to 8/9 where as normal usage/mouses are mapped to 6/7. So the relatively simple fix is xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7" and this works for mapping the wheel buttons. The problem is that the old 6/7 buttons have autorepeat but the 8/9 ones don't. i.e. if you press scroll right and keep it down, it should continually send scroll-right commands (in software) so your view scrolls right until you let go. With the 8/9 buttons they do not, (HowTos)
