I second this, I emailed grantham about it, and he must be busy, but I really
need those buttons and they don't seem to work.. You should see how loaded my
Button1 is under twm right now... ;-)
I have a mac SE/30 with the std keyboard that came with it, not extended, is
this my problem?
btw-- I love this! I want to help. What is out there for scrolling the root
window around on the SE/30 mini screen? Have us SE/30 people been porting a
virtual window manager, or what? I was thinking about developing an app to
run as a window manager that would run like macpaint, where if you held the
option key down, your cursor would turn into a hand and you could move around
a more nominal space ??? Thoughts?
