Section "InputClass"
    Option          "TapButton2"                "2"
    Option          "TapButton3"                "3"
    Option      "EmulateMidButtonTime"          "25"

The time is in milliseconds; you might want to adjust it.

Or you can try synclient, which should take
synclient Tapbutton2=2 Tapbutton3=3
