Re: mouse button emulation not working on iBook



Just my two cents here,

I use the apple key and caps lock as my right and middle buttons
respectively.  Many people ask why I do this, and the answer is two
fold:

1) The reason I run a mac with linux rather than x86 is because I want a
nice looking machine.  I don't want to ruin the asthetic getting a poor
looking mouse just to have extra buttons.

2) I am right handed, and when my right hand is on the mouse, I want
keys I can reach easily and comfortably with the left.  I don't use the
apple or caps lock keys, so why not use them as mouse buttons.

Interestingly, I have gotten to like this so much, I tend to really miss
it when I am using a machine that *DOES* have three buttons.

I have been meaning to checking into doing this with my x86 laptop.

Best,
Oscar.

PS:
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode=58
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode=125
