I can't tell from your message whether you have the right format in
/etc/sysctl.conf. It should be:
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button_emulation = 1
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode = 88
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode = 125
anything else will be an unknown key.
I don't know about that specific format with '.' inbetween words, but
mine works perfectly well with the usual '/'. However, the key vs. what
Nathan configured is omitting the leading '/proc/sys/'. Since this file
controls sysctl, i.e. everything under /proc/sys....
My problem was the leading /proc/sys/. Got rid of that in
/etc/sysctl.conf and everything worked fine. Also, there doesn't seem
to be any change when using '.' instead of '/'.
Thanks for the tips,
