How to "middle-click" on new macbooks

seem to give solutions that work for older versions of OSX, and one works for Snow Leopard. But none of them seem to work for Leopard.

Does anyone have a solution to generate a true middle click without an external mouse, under Leopard?

(The main thing I want middle click for is pasting into xterms, so if there's an alternative way to do that, that would be great to know too.)


Jitouch allows you to set gestures, one of which is middle-click.

Jitouch preferences setting middle-click


Did you try BetterTouchTool?

  • It says Snow Leopard only. I tried it on Leopard anyway -- no good.

  • @dreeves: I apologize; I didn't notice it was reported the application is only for Snow Leopard. In the FAQ, the author reported he will not make a Leopard version.
