Emulate3Buttons

Unread postby telackey » Tue Mar 06, 2012 5:15 pm

I have a great old two-button PS/2 mouse that I'd like to use with my O2.

Is there any equivalent to the XFree86 'Emulate3Buttons' setting? I checked the wiki and the man page for pcmouse, but came up empty.

If you want to use X/Free86, then use Linux.

I'm not trying to use XFree86 or Linux.

I want to use my two button mouse but still be able to copy and paste things.

Perhaps some chicanery with xmodmap? Alt+Click to simulate the pointer button?
