April 26th, 2008, 04:51 PM
Hi, i asked for advice in #linux-help and #ubuntu but no one could figure this out, .. I dont know what the package is called that used to be located in "System->Preferences->Universal Access->Keyboard Accessibility" or i would just install it. It's not there anymore, and my xmodmap file wont work correctly without changing these values. I unfortunately have apple hardware and no right mouse button. any ideas?

thanks - trevelyn.

OKAY i found it, i think. I went to System->Preferences->Keyboard->Mouse Keys tab then clicked "control mouse with keyboard" and my xmodmap file started working.

keycode 116 = Pointer_Button2
keycode 108 = Pointer_Button3

I just enabled it to run automatically eachtime i log into X with System->Sessions and make the command

xmodmap ~/.xmodmap

For the record.. keyboard accessibility settings are now located under System>Preferences>Assistive Technologies: Then click keyboard accessibility. I know that you have solved your problem but the old method you described is still available through that menu.
