Add this to your /etc/sysctl.conf to add emulation for button 2 and 3 to
F10 and F11, if you would like them somewhere else, just use another

dev/mac_hid/mouse_button3_keycode=67    #F10
dev/mac_hid/mouse_button2_keycode=87    #F11

I added these to my /etc/sysctl.conf file but nothing changed.

I checked the archives for this list and found a shell script that uses `echo` to insert the values directly into the /proc/sys/dev device files so I looked in /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation and discovered that emulation was already enabled!!! However, I'd like to change the configuration and I can't find the file that enabled/configured the emulation... I tried grep'ing recursively through the entire /etc directory but can't find anything. (In the mean time, I've written a small shell script that I run _manually_ every time I start KDE.)

When/Where is emulation enabled?

After reboot, or use the procps-init.d-script.

What's procps-init.d-script?
