    ibook G4 -ubuntu 9.04 right-click remap

    i've searched everywhere, but i can't find anything useful

    this one in particular, sounded easy enough, but my /etc/sysctl.conf. file
    only had settings about not forwarding packets and other routing stuff
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=212373

    i'm trying to get the right click remapped to something else,
    if someone can point me in the right direction, that would really help
    (i can find the keyboard codes, etc, i just need to know where to edit
    or drivers to replace?... i have no clue)

    for some reason F12 does an eject, and Fn+F12 does the right-click
    but that may be besides the point...?

    I really prefer that configuration, I really don't know how to remap that...

    Use a mouse, perhaps?

    i have set mine on my powerbookg4 to be ctrl click
    it's uber easy.
    just edit /etc/default/mouseemu
    there will be a number of lines commented out with #, remove the # on the line with right click, there are descriptions of which is what.
    then restart, you could restart the mouseemu via command line but in my experiences it is easier to just reboot.
