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
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.
