Fluxbox tabs -- What's a "third-click"

Hello everybody...

I'm trying to figure out how to use tabs in fluxbox (0.9.14), but I can't seem to get it to work.

The manual says to third click on a tab (which it says is the window title bar, and then drag it onto another window... Maybe I just don't know what third-clicking is...

Thanks everybody,


Update: I think I got it working.... Using the middle button of my mouse... Problem is, I use a touchpad most of the time, what suggestions do you guys have? Thanks.

If you have a "left" and "right" buttons with your touchpad you could use the emulate 3 buttons option in xorg.conf, so that by pressing both the left and right button together you get a "middle" click

Thanks phil....

Is there any way to apply a keyboard shortcut to the tabbing stuff... I can use ALT and my mouse to drag a window. Can I use a key and my mouse to drag a window tab?
