Anybody know how to make Solaris/SPARC do the equivalent of "emulate3buttons"
Reason: I've got two computers here, an AMD-based Windows system, and a
Ultra 60. I've got them connected to the dual inputs of a 21" Sun multisync
monitor. I've got the Ultra60 connected to one of the Sun PS/2 keyboard/mouse
The PS/2 keyboard and mouse connections on the U60 (through the box) and
the Winbox are connected to a PS2 KVM switch (using on the KM parts).
I can switch the monitor between systems with the switch on the front, and
switch the KB/Mouse between systems with the switchbox. However, my
current favorite pointing device is a 2-button (with wheel, ick) Microsoft
optical mouse - which only has 2 buttons. I'd like to be able to emulate
the middle button on a 3-button mouse somehow, as it comes in handy when
doing cut/paste under Solaris/*nix. I'd like to be able to use the MS
mouse, and not have to go back to the Logitech Trackman Marble FX that
I was using about a month ago (altho it IS better than nothing at all).
