Ok, I read that again but I still don't seem to get it. Forgive me, I'm slow:
= click left button
-[win] + touch + 2
= click middle button
-[win] + touch + 3
= click right button
Also, you can use 4th and 5th button.
Can someone tell me what this means? I think this means holding down
the windows key while touching the screen, but what does +2 or +3
mean? What are the 4th and 5th buttons?
I can probably submit a patch for the man page if this needs to be
more clear. So far I don't understand it...
