Can't select anything. Need to default to left click so I can select and
grab stuff. Right-click should be emulated as in ctrl click.
Cocooncrash reckons I should examine
evdev, Option "ButtonMapping" and edit xorg.conf
Whole bunch of technical detail to absorb, still thinking about it.
I then tried what looked like a better option, installing mouseemu but
it did something horribly weird to the keyboard.
*Since, dpkg-reconfigure has been deprecated I couldn't reset the
keyboard, so, I'm reinstalling again so my friend doesn't freak out, and
then I'll try mousetweaks.
