mouse button emulation question


hey there

I have an iBook, so there's only a left-click button.
Tapping the keypad works for left click as well, so I'm wondering if it's possible to use the keypad tap for left-click and the button for right-click or vice versa? or are they inseparable?

thanks,
phil

That's a question specific to X and it's features.
I, unfortunately, believe that the tapping and key are hard-wired by the touchpad controller
Ask google?

I think they must be hard-wired together. oh well. I got a wireless mini usb mouse today, I can live with that.

There is nothing like the IBM's 3-button track-point .
