    Accessing the third button


    I'm having difficulty getting my mouse to function as I would like it to. Right now I have to emulate three buttons by simultaneously right/left clicking. The problem is that I can access a third button by clicking on the scroll wheel, and this isn't working. I checked out my xorg.conf file and the section for my mouse was:
    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
    EndSection
    I tried removing the "Emulate3Buttons" line and replaced it with a line that read:
    Option "Buttons" "3"
    but this didn't fix anything. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I would guess set Emulate3Buttons to "no". If you're going to include the option "Button", set its value to "5" since Linux probably recognizes it as a 5-button mouse.
