 We might be talking about different things.  This is a netbook, it
has a pad which works like a mouse plus two buttons (or keys).  When
I added the Emulate3Buttons option to the pointer section of my
evdev.conf it made no difference, I had to add it to the touchpad

 But I'm happy to leave mac hardware to you ;-)

Nanny Ogg usually went to bed early. After all, she was an old lady.
Sometimes she went to bed as early as 6 a.m.
