pismo mouse questions and tangent
I know I've seen at least one of these questions asked on here before, but I couldn't find them in the archives, so pardon me.
1) How does one redifine keys (in X) to be mouse buttons? I know I need to use showkey to get the keycode for each key, but I don't know where to tell X that those keys should be used as middle and right mouse buttons. I want a keydown to be a mousedown, and a key release to be a mouseup. That is, I don't to have to option-click to get a right click; I want to be able to just press the option key.
2) How can I control the tracking speed of the mouse (or trackpad in my case)? I'm using fluxbox, and not KDE or Gnome. Is there a way to do this just in X, without going through the KDE control panel, or gnome equivalent?
3) Another trackpad question: I want "notap" to be the default for my trackpad. What is the best way to have this run every time the computer is started? I suppose it might involve putting it in some rc*.d script, but I'm not clear on exactly what those are, or how they get invoked, etc. Can anyone direct me to some literature on that as well?
