Description of problem:
Having grown up with Macs, I'm hooked on the one button mouse.  I haven't found anyway to use an Apple one button mouse with linux on an i386.  Perhaps there's a way to get mac_hid on an i386 system?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Hmm doesn't really need reproduction.

I very much doubt that the upstream kernel would implement the mac_hid stuff on
non ppc architectures - the correct place to persue that is lkml.

You may be able to achieve something you want using xmodmap or bind keys to
switch pointer order 

or just use X's mouse keys function

Or possibly the gnome accessibility stuff might do it too:


You should be able to google to be able to use your setup, but as it's not a
recomended configuration s-c-mouse will not configure anything like this for you.

An additional link demonstrating xmodmap in conjunction with wm key bindings,
differences with your setup should be :


Also you may look at 
the fakekeys implementation in xdarwin and try and port that to xfree86
