Using keyboard to emulate left and right mouse buttons
I am running Linux Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron laptop that I bought at a garage sale for 50 cents. After spending quite a few hours resurrecting it, it works just fine except for the left and right mouse buttons on the touch pad. They do not function.
Is there a way to emulate the left and right mouse buttons from the keyboard?
(I know that I can just plug in a mouse, but I would rather just use the keyboard if possible.)
