Perhaps this worked in the past. But to emulate the 2nd and 3rd mouse
buttons, I had to use the two keys at the right of the space bar. The
problem is that one of these two keys (the right option key) generates
the same code as the left option key (is there a way to fix that?).
Thus the left option key also emulates a mouse button and I can't use
it to switch the virtual console for instance.

Here, from X, I can use the apple key instead of the option key.
