mouse on Powerbook G4 (CTRL+Click right mouse button)

Hello, I have searched for hours but I can't find a solution for my problem, I am sure it is possible....
I want map the right mouse button to the CTRL + Click combination
not more.

for the program mouseemu I found the appropriate combination,
but on my current gentoo installation it is in the kernel integrated and with this three lines in
/etc/sysctl.conf it seems to be activated:
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button_emulation = 1
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode = 87
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode = 88

now it is working with F11 and F12. this is not the baddest solution....

But I prefer to have it with CTRL + CLICK. With the program showkey I was not able to find the combination.
other kombinations I have found but on ctrl click nothing appears.
Con somebody tell me the correct code for that, or describe a way to get this.

You can setup xorg, so that a 2 finger click is mouse-2 and a 3 finger click is mouse-3. I'll spin up my PB, and post the config in a few.

Hello thanks for your answer,
when I right understand: with zour config I am able to make a click when two fingers touch the pad?

I am not sure if my touchpad can detect more than one finger. It is an old Powerbook G4 , 12Inch, Aluminium , 768MHZ, approx 5years old...

But a test is it worth....
