Get apwal from synaptic.

Set applications which you want to launch.

Get btnx and btnx-config deb packages.

http://www.ollisalonen.com/btnx/

#sudo mkdir /etc/btnx

Install btnx and btnx-config.

#sudo btnx-config

Click “detect mouse & buttons”.

Follow the guide, and detect all of buttons your mouse have.

Assignment Orchis launcher.

This example I set Orchis launcher as Button7.

“Buttons” Tab -> Property; Button7 -> Event type -> Command execution

Execute command -> /usr/bin/apwal

Process UID -> 1000 (You can check your Process UID with this command, # id).

“Configuration” Tab -> Restart btnx

Search what driver is needed for your video card.
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

For example, my video card needs NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12. etc.

Search the similar name driver on Synaptic.

For example, nvidia_169.xx.

Install it, and reboot.

Now you can enjoy 3D desktop effects.
