This will allow you to use your extra mouse buttons (the ones you typically use for back and forward in Firefox/Chromium) inside a SPICE-enabled VM.

You will need both a patched client on the host (spice-gtk-extra-mouse-buttons) and a patched agent on the guest (spice-vdagent-extra-mouse-buttons). Thus, both your host and guest need to be Arch Linux, or you need to figure out how to apply yourself (please only report problems after confirming them on an Arch host+guest combination).

Aside from installing the packages, make sure to enable SPICE on the host (https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/QEMU#Enabling_SPICE_support_on_the_host) and the guest (https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/QEMU#Enabling_SPICE_support_on_the_guest), then it should just work. I successfully tested it with both spicy and remote-viewer as clients.
