icewm-1.2.6 mouse button swap - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

    Default icewm-1.2.6 mouse button swap

    Greetings,

    I'm left-handed. How do I swap the buttons on my mouse so I can use my
    index finger to click things on the desktop like regular folks? I
    looked in /usr/share/preferences and couldn't find the appropriate
    line.

    I'm using a two-buttom p/s MS mouse with 3-button emulation turned on.
    My OS is RH8.

    Didn't work Stephan. I didn't have a .xsession file, so I just made
    one. Was that a mistake? Only other thing: Perhaps in XF86Config(there
    was no XF86Config-4) I used tabs when I should have used spaces.

    I'm going to follow up that link you gave for more info.
