I'm running a freshly-installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my Dell Latitude D630 laptop. I generally use the pointer stick/eraser head to move the pointer around the screen, and the corresponding buttons to click (i.e., I don't use the touchpad or its buttons). I'm trying to use synclient to enable a virtual middle button click for the pointer stick-associated buttons, but have only seen how to do it for the touchpad-associated buttons.
Does anyone know how to do this? It seems like synclient only has control over the touchpad buttons (I only see TapButtonN for N=1,2,3)..
