xbindkeys may be used to assign any function to any mouse button,
including the 'extra' ones.
Instructions can be found in several places, for example here:
Emulating key presses, using xte, which is part of the xautomation
package, is mentioned here. As an example, I have Ctrl+W ('Close')
performed by an 'extra' mouse button ('button 9' in my case) by
assigning this function to the button in xbindkeys-config:
/usr/bin/xte 'keydown Control_L' 'key W' 'keyup Control_L'

Clicking the wheel = button 2, scrolling up/down = button 4/5.
Furthermore, several mouse properties, such as the mouse cursor speed,
may be adjusted using libinput.
