emulation of mouse buttons with the keyboard


I'd like to map my left,middel,right mouse button to F14,F15,F16
so that I e.g could either click middel mouse button or F15 with the same effect.

On a Macintosh PowerBook this is possible by adding the following to /etc/sysctl.conf

# /etc/sysctl.conf - Configuration file for setting system variables

I am wondering how this could be archived with an i386 machine.
I guess this is related to xmodmap but I can't figure out how to configure this.

TIA, lixus

You would probably find better results by searching, but it so happens that I saw an example of code for key mapping recently.

Hope it helps.
