My Linux Settings and Configuration Files

Published on January 01, 2006

Listed below are configuration files for my Linux partition.

Mouse Settings for left-handed users

By default, the mouse is set up for right-handed users. If you are left-handed you can reverse the buttons. To do this, create a file in your home directory called .Xmodmap. Then put this single line in it.

pointer = 3 2 1

Then run the following command only once. You will never need to run the command again.

xmodmap .Xmodmap

From now on, your mouse is a left-handed mouse.

If this does not work, maybe you have a Logitech mouse or a 5 or 7 button mouse. To check the number of keys you have, run the command.

xmodmap -pp

My .Xmodmap file has this:

pointer = 3 2 1 7 6 4 5
