It turns out that the middle and right mouse buttons are simply swapped ..

Comment 6 Joachim Frieben 2008-03-09 17:20:25 UTC
Same issue on a desktop PC with a scroll mouse attached to the PS/2 port.
This bug should be added to the F9 blocker bug ..

Comment 7 Ralf Ertzinger 2008-03-09 19:44:48 UTC
"xmodmap -e 'pointer 1 3 2'" will temporarily fix this.

Comment 8 Ulrich Drepper 2008-03-09 22:27:13 UTC
Probably a generic bug.  In case not, I see it on my X61 as well.

Comment 9 Rene Rask 2008-03-10 02:50:04 UTC
I can confirm this on my Lenovo T61p. Buttons are swapped.
On my Toshiba Qosmio it doesn't happen.

xmodmap -e 'pointer 1 3 2'
xmodmap:  commandline:1:  bad buttons pointer code list, missing equal sign
xmodmap:  1 error encountered, aborting.

xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 3 2'
Warning: Only changing the first 3 of 32 buttons.

This command does the job.

FWIW with today's Rawhide I can no longer use my Synaptic touchpad as a button
by tapping it twice. I tried the xmodmap suggestion in #7 but touchpad is still
unusable as a button. The 2 right hardbuttons above and under my touchpad also
no longer work. Normal mouse moving with the touchpad works fine afaict.

  FWIW I found that for my usb mouse if I detach the mouse and then reconnect
it again the buttons order is restored. :-)

Fixed in xorg-x11-drv-evdev 1.99.1-0.3.fc9.
