I 've installed gentoo on my windtunnel with a fair degree of success, so far. After instaling openbox, I find I can't right-click on the desktop to bring up the menu. It worked ok with the default window manager before I set XSESSION to openbox.

The mouse is a Fujitsu Component Apple Optical USB Mouse. Has anyone seen this before?

Apparently the Apple Optical can only generate a button 1 event. I seem to remember getting left and right mouse button effects using macos with these mice.

To fix the openbox probelm I just changed my rc.xml file. But is there a way to have an Apple mouse generate more than one type of button event in linux?

There is a way to make the F11 and/or F12(or any of those keys, emulate right clicks. By I've only did this via mandrake where it did it automaticly.

Yeah thanks, its described in the ppc faq if anyone else is interested.

I was just wondering if the macos did infact have a way to detect more than one button event from the Apple mice, and if linux was able to do so as well.
