Have a simular problem when swapping the left and right mouse button.

It works fine on the applications, but it doesn't work on the KDE
application menu and KDE panel.

After the change I even did a restart of the test system to double check.

Running fully up2date Fedora Core 2.

Extra: THis problem was also in one of the Fedora Core 1 test
releases, but was fixed in de official FC1

Best regard,

Here is a bit of information / workaround for the problem I was having:

When I was using the mouse as a USB mouse, the problem was present. 
If I used it as a PS/2 mouse with the port adapter hardware, the
buttons switched as expected.
Comment 3 Hal Black 2004-02-19 21:35:31 EST
Okay, the PS/2 workaround doesn't work in Fedora Core 2 test 1.
To add to Hay's comments, the gnome panel also doesn't work (in
addition to the KDE panel)
Comment 4 Hal Black 2004-02-29 13:04:48 EST
Some additional information: this is with the Microsoft Intellimouse
Optical USB.

I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem? 

(This a batch message is being sent to all my bugs that haven't changed in a year)
Comment 6 Hal Black 2005-05-12 20:16:12 EDT
Looks like this works now in Fedora Core 4 Test 2 for Gnome.  I can't figure out
how to bring up the configuration panel for KDE.
Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-13 11:01:33 EDT
Great, thanks.  I'll close the bug.
