VMware 16.2.4 Cannot use Forward Back Buttons in VM Guest

Host System: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Guest System: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

VMware Workstation Pro: 16.2.4 (And other previous versions)

Problem: Cannot use extra buttons on mouse such as Forward and Back.

This problem does not exist on a Windows 11 Host.

It seems the Linux Host VMware has this annoying bug.

I have tried many methods such as edit the .vmx and edit the ~/.vmware/config to add some configurations about mouse, and I restart, but nothing changed.

I wonder if VMWare will try to fix this bug or it will be there forever.
