No answer means normally that the question is not well understood.  Maybe some screenshots could help?

You have 5 slides:

  1. is a dashboard slide, with two menu buttons Bt_1 and Bt_2.  When starting Bt_2 is disabled. Bt_1 has 'Jump to Slide 2"
  2. What happens here? How does it move to
  3. What happens here? How does it move to
  4. This slide has aother button Bt_Back that 'Jump to Slide 1'
  5. Will be visted using Bt_2 on Slide 1

Create a user variable v_visit with a default value of 0.

For the On Enter event of slide 1, create an action:

  IF v_visit is equal to 0

      Disable Bt_2

      Assign v_visit with 1
       Continue

  ELSE

      Enable Bt_2
       Continue

How is the learner navigating to slide 3 and 4? You don't need that many variables if the 2-3-4 slides ae in sequence, have a next button on 2 and 3 and a Back button on 4.  Just curious.

I explained in my first answer what you had to do.  Since the learner cannot come back to the menu slide from slide 2 or 3, but only from slide 4 which has the back button, you need only one action to be triggere On Enter of slide 1. None is needed on the other slides at all. The first time that slide 1 is visited, the variable v_vist has the origibnal default value 0, so the second buttons will be disabled. At the same time that variable is changed to 1. When the learner returns to slide 1, the variable has its value 1 and the second button will be enabled. Very simple and efficient. You need to visit my blog, has tons of use cases with Advanced and Shared actions. Try drawing a flowchart, you'll see that I am right. KISS is always the best way.
