I am controlling my Raspberry Pi with some old Apple stuff. Thus, my mouse only has a single mouse button. Is there any way for me to use right-click functionality within the Raspbian OS, or do I need to buy a new mouse?

Does F12 still work as right-click under wheezy? – Paul Mar 25 '13 at 2:20
@Paul thanks for the suggestion, but it wasn't helpful. Maybe it is because I am using an Apple keyboard? – xxmbabanexx Mar 25 '13 at 2:22

You can use mouseemu to emulate the buttons on your keyboard - the configration files are at /etc/default/mouseemu. Ode2 has a useful set of sample configurations for a sane setup - suggesting that you merely un-comment the lines for rightclick and middle click. As always, read the manpage for more ideas on how to use the software.
