After updating to the latest linux-lts (5.10) btnx stopped working. Turns out it only searches /dev/input/event0 through /dev/input/event19 for your mouse, and mine ended up at /dev/input/event20. This patch fixed it:

To get this package to install, I had to modify PKGBUILD to change "./configure --prefix=/usr" to "./configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/usr/bin" in the build function. Same thing with the related btnx-config-git AUR package.
