Description Eugene Kanter 2003-03-29 03:38:06 UTC
Description of problem:

Original two button Microsoft PS/2 mouse autodetected as a generic tree button

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-03-30 19:50:19 UTC
There's no way to differentiate between a two and a three button mouse by probing.

Comment 2 Eugene Kanter 2003-03-31 03:31:20 UTC
I have to agree after reading other sources.
Please be on the safe side and assume these kind of mice as 2 button or at least
select emulate 3 button by default.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-04-02 20:30:03 UTC
Well 3 buttons mice have been the norm for ages so thats why we assume 3 button.
I realize that doesn't work for everyone but I think it works for the vast majority.
