Mouse3-Emulation (the Middle-Mouse-Button)


Hiho,
I searched the web, but i dont find anything.
When I press the left and the right button at once, it emulates the middle mouse button (for gamers: mouse 3). So for example it opens a new tab in firefox.
I need to disable it. Any hints?

Distro: Debian/etch, kde 3.5.5

If you are using Firefox, and it is Firefox's behavior during online game play where you are experiencing the problem, you can set browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick to false in Firefox's about:config dialog. Then Firefox will ignore chord click of the left and right mouse buttons.

No, it was just an example. In Quake3 im zooming instead of doing an rocket-jump, in Warsow im doding instead of doing an rocketjump, and i am sure in other programs there are equal examples. So I need to disable this Mousebehaviour.

I'm not so sure there is a simple way to do that in X Window. The X Window clipboard depends on that to function. Maybe there is a way to disable the X clipboard, but I don't know how to do that.
