KDE apple mouse

Hi - Does anyone else use KDE with apple hardware? I can't seem to find anything out there about apple mouse support for right-clicking. Any advice? Thanks

As a longtime Mac user (whose first name irl also happens to be Steve), I can tell you that Mr Jobs' so-called "aesthetic" has ended a lot of users up in blind alleys like this. With decent Logitech driver-free 3-button mice selling for between $7 and $26 online and in retail stores, your best bet is to get out from under that anachronism Apple calls a multi-button mouse and stop worrying about compatibility.

Presently I "commute" between Ubuntu and Windows, but I still use the mouse I used on (count 'em) two genuine Macs and one Dell laptop. Logitech Click! No longer made, scarcely available, but a hell of a good buy at $32 tax included back in 2004.

Hope this helps. BZT
