I have iBook G4 and can't find Insert key on this f*cking keyboard. I'm realy upset - it is possible to edit web forms with only BOTH HANDS !
Holy god, I hv vim for the text edit goals.

You can always map the Insert key to another button on ur keyboard. Have a look at xev and xmodmap.

hehe tats up to you... which ever key you hate the most, I hate the windows key personally but i imagine you don't have that issue. Actually you should prolly use something which won't conflict with ur normal usage.

btw i cracked up the first time I read your post's title, kinda dirty lol.

Oh yea add solved to your title if your problem has been fixed. :D

Probably one that gets used very little. May I suggest one of the F keys? It's really up to you.

Hi, sorry if this is off-topic.
I'm using fn+alt at the moment for right mouse button click,
with dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation = 1 in sysctl.conf.
Can anyone with the apple button mapped to rightclick give me the keycode for the apple button?

Code:
# Mouseemu Configuration File
# Each uncommented line is read by the mouseemu initscript
# (/etc/init.d/mouseemu). If you use mouseemu without the
# initscript, source this file in your .bashrc/.cshrc/.zshrc
# Keycodes can be found using the "showkey" program.

#MID_CLICK="-middle 0 68"         # F10 with no modifier
#RIGHT_CLICK="-right 0 87"        # F11 with no modifier
#SCROLL="-scroll 56"              # Alt key
#TYPING_BLOCK="-typing-block 300" # block mouse for 300ms after a keypress

MID_CLICK="-middle 0 68"         # F10 with no modifier
RIGHT_CLICK="-right 0 125"        # F11 with no modifier
SCROLL="-scroll 56"              # Alt key
#TYPING_BLOCK="-typing-block 300" # block mouse for 300ms after a keypress


this is my /etc/mouseemu.conf

but using F10 for weel-mouse-key is not comfortable, because while inserting smth. in your shell, you'll get first ~ sign

You can find the keycodes by going to a console (not an xterm) and using showkey.

Showkey gave me the correct keycode (xevent gave another one - i think, i don't have that installed now to check).
Apple-right click works now, thanks!

maybe the second "enter key"?

You know, the one to the left of the "Left Arrow", right of the "Right Command Key"
