Press and hold for right click on tablet?

I have a tablet computer running 10.04 and I was wondering if there is a way under Linux to have click and hold be a right click like it is under Windows Xp/Vista/7 this is really the last piece of functionality I am missing on the system under Linux. I have tried easystroke but I do not like that I have to disable it in order to use Xournal on the system so that will not work for right clicking...

Any suggestions?

It depend on the tablet. Mine had an egalax touch screen and it worked out of the box, without any tweak to make it (right click) work. You should check the driver you are using (/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ or something like that, it moved around once again with the 10.04 release...) and the lspci or lsusb command. Then check the options available for the driver you are using, you have good chances of finding the right option.
