Right click on HP Mini with Ubuntu UNR February 27, 2010

Just bought a notebook: HP Mini 210-1015es.

Installing Ubuntu Network Remix was a doddle however it has the mouse buttons integrated into the touch pad and they don’t get recognized.

This is not a problem for the left click since you can just tap the pad however there was no right click.

You can activate the right click by telling the psmouse that you have an exps mouse. You just create /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.modprobe and add the following line:

psmouse proto=exps

However this means that you loose the touch pad functionality like the scroll as you move down the pad. Grrrrrr. Can’t i have the best of both worlds?
