Bug Description

The Lenovo ThinkPad T420i has a Forward button and a Back button, located above the conventional left and right arrow keys. These buttons work splendidly with Firefox and Chromium, and preclude the need for hitting the Alt key.

It would be nice if I could use these in Fogger apps as well.

Hmm, I'm not sure if this should be fixed in Fogger. It's a trivial fix; Just need to hookup back/forward actions to the buttons but I think it should be handled at a lower level. May be XOrg should automatically send alt+back/alt+forward to apps when these keys are pressed.

You can also assign alt+back/alt+forward to these keys in Gnome Control Center. That way they'll work in almost every app instead of just fogger.

Thanks
