Linux Mint Mouse Buttons Not Working

Linux Mint Mouse Buttons Not Working:

I just installed mint on a VM and have been really enjoying using a linux desktop. However My mouse buttons for forward/back are not working. I’ve found solutions online saying to use ‘xev -event mouse | grep -B2 button’ but my buttons will not display output when pressed. I know left click is button1, right click button 3, Mouse wheel up is 4, mouse wheel down is 5. Mouse wheel click in not displayed, and forward/back is not displayed.
