Intellipoint is a proprietary program from Microsoft which allows the Microsoft 
Windows user to customize what the mouse buttons do.  On Microsoft Windows 
installations I've seen, Intellipoint adds functionality to the standard mouse 
control panel program.  Intellipoint comes with Microsoft mice and trackballs. 
  I believe the program works only with Microsoft brand input devices (mice and 
trackballs).  The options can apply for all programs or one can specify 
exceptions for specific programs (i.e., normally I want the left button to send 
a right mouse click, but in program Foobar I want the left button to send a 
space character to the program).

I know of no such equivalent.
