Touchpad config, right and left click

Hello there folks.

I have a satellite laptop runnign kubuntu with kde 4. I just noticed that my touchpad is responding the other way around: when i hit the touchpad, i get a menu as if i just hit the right click. So, i want to turn this around and have the normal left click in the touchpad and the right click in whichever button i configure. I make note here that i am left handed so when i plug in the usb mouse, i have set it to be for lefties, which means, the right click is left and so on and so forth.

How do i configure the touchpad so that i have the touchpad behavior normal, without affecting the left-handed mouse config?

Let me know if i have explained my self thoroughly, thanks a lot.
