How does one emulate a right mouse button click on target machines? Control-click doesn't seem to do it.
Check out the section of the Chicken of the VNC help file (which is titled "About Chicken of the VNC") called "Mouse Button Emulation".
For the lazy, here it is:
"If you are one of those cursed with a single button mouse, you can emulate the right button by quickly tapping the <Shift> key. The mouse pointer will change to indicate that clicks will act like the third (right) mouse button. Likewise, you can emulate the middle button by quickly tapping the <Control> key. To cancel emulation, tap the key a second time.
If you are lucky enough to have a two or three button mouse, you don't need to worry about emulation as Chicken of the VNC supports up to three mouse buttons, as well as scroll-wheels on compatible servers."
Would it be possible in a future release to make Chicken work more like Apple's X11 in this regard? i.e., Ctrl-click = right button; Opt-click = middle button. And I'm sure some folks would like to be able to choose (via preferences) their own modifier keys....
One button mice.... (shudder)
thanks for the assistance in the matter. I tried to glean the knowledge from the preferences but it wasn't clear. Nothing wrong with one button mice people. it's perfectly natural. Besides a laptop like my iBook is technically a one button mouse and we can't always be taking out our pocket USB mice all the time. Sometimes it's just easier to go to.
