ok, thanks :). (smiling yet again) in that folder (directory, mac os
habit...) I saw 3 files, all of them 0 bytes. all have a 0 or nothing,
depending which file viewer one uses, and the names are mouse_button2_???
mouse_button3 and mouse_button_emulation. I tried editing them to have them
read as 1, and not zero, but the kernel wouldn't let me. also I've been
having a strange problem with permissions. What's the permission and owner
of /usr ? anyone?
