Re: Regarding GTKPBBUTTONSD and list participation

I hope I'm not one of the strange guys one should normally just ignore
and I will try to answer some of your questions and elaborate below why
I normally would not have bothered to answer them.

You have probably configured your system clock to be GMT in linux. You
can run "tzsetup -g" to change that or edit /etc/default/rcS.

I don't use gtkpbbuttonsd or pbuttonsd, but I was wondering why
everybody seems to use these tools. I use acme for this purpose which is
a standard gnome app with a standard gnome control panel and works very
well. Does pbuttonsd have any big advantages?

There was also a patch once on this list to make ctrl behave like under
macos. Don't have links now, google will be your friend for that.

And please consider this the next time you post a qustion:
- use your real name, I like to know whom I help and I guess your name
is not "nmp|||"
- Don't steal a thread, start a new question with a new mail with now
References header
- at least google before you ask, at least the mouse button emulation is
very easy to find.
- I have some problems to understand your abbrevations what means S.Q.?
(This one is probably not your fault, because my english isn't the best
- consider reading http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
It's a bit discouraging to newbies and IMHO too hard to them, but if you
follow it I'm quite sure you will get an answer.

set up.
