problem with left-handed mouse on X - is GPM to blame or is it X?
Given how everyone in this family is left-handed, I recently got around
inverting the order of the mouse buttons in GPM; works great in console.
Since GPM is setup as a repeater for X, I thought that X would also end up
defaulting to inverted button order, but it doesn't.
I haven't found any option in X to configure the button order and Googling
didn't tell me anything relevant about perhaps selecting a different protocol in
GPM to get everything working in X the same way it does on console.
Would anybody happen to have a cure for this?
