The problem: you have a Microsoft Keyboard (i.e. a keyboard with Microsoft special keys like Home, Browser, Mail, etc.) and a Logitech mouse with many buttons (in my case, a Logitech MX Revolution), and most of the buttons are plain unresponsive in OS X.

I have written a complete tutorial on my blog on how to use ControllerMate and AppleScript to get all these buttons to work. Although the information to do this is scattered throughout the web and you can piece it together (it took me about five hours to get it all set up the first time), I've gathered it up in one spot. It does not go into "for Dummies" detail, but if you have questions, please ask (preferentially directly at the blog entry, but as you like).

[robg adds: I haven't tested this one.]
