    permanent left-handed mouse in lubuntu/LDXE

    Hello,

    I'm trying to permanently switch the right- and left-click buttons on my mouse in lubuntu/LDXE. I've gone into lxinput and selected 'Left Handed', however, when I reboot it reverts to right-handed. I love lubuntu/LDXE, but this could be a deal-breaker.
    Any fellow lubuntu lefties?

    Thanks

    Menu->Preferences->Keyboard and Mouse and tick Left handed. That's the easy way.

    Thanks for the reply, but the method you described is how I accessed 'lxinput'. When I tick the left-handed option it still reverts upon reboot/logout.
    Any ideas of how to make it permanent?

    I would try navigating to and edit the following file:
    /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/desktop.conf

    I think you put a "1" in the left handed mouse parameter and then do a reboot. That should take care of it.
