I’m pretty ambidextrous, and for various reasons, I’d like a mouse to the left of my keyboard that I can grab with my left hand and also a mouse to the right of my keyboard that I can grab with my right hand.
That means I need the left mouse’s button order reversed, but not the right one’s.
I can reverse the pointers on both mice at once by using
xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1" under X11, or on MacOS using their GUI interface, but I haven’t figured out any way to do that so that the two mice behave differently.
An alternative solution would be for the mice themselves to be sufficiently ergonomically enclued that they “know” which hand they’ve been grabbed with and behave accordingly, with mirrored buttons on a left-hand grab, no matter which mouse it is. Is there any mouse on the commercial that’s actually smart enough for this sort of usefulness?
I’ve looked at the near-hit questions, but none of them answer this question definitively. My primary platform is MacOS, and my secondary platform is OpenBSD. I occasionally work on Linux, but only when ssh’d into it, so the mouse would be on the local end I believe.
