Hi all folks!!

Yesterday I discovered a very nice feature completely hidden to me: on my laptop touchpad, while tapping with one does left-click, tapping with two fingers simulates the middle-click button (extremely useful to paste text...).
And now my question: does anyone know if there is a similar trick to do a right-click? I have ubuntu 8.04.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion!!

a.i :D

This is configurable. For example on my macbook I use something like https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBook#touchpadtweaks

If you need more help, pastebin
lshal.

You can try three fingers though to see if that does a right click by default.

WOW! That's great!! It works like that!! Now I'll try to switch right click and middle click...

THANKS!!
