CorePointer -> switchable
SendCoreEvents -> NOT switchable

It doesn't matter if external USB mouse or touchpad is CorePointer or


SendCoreEvents -> Touchpad not switchable
SendCoreEvents -> External USB mouse not switchable and if you click a few
times on left mouse button you get the same effect as on clicking the right
mouse button (for example you get context menu for both buttons -> mouse
behaves crazy) *



CorePointer -> Trackpoint Switchable
SendCoreEvents -> Not switchable
device not in xorg.conf -> not switchable

It doesn't matter if Trackpad or Touchpad is CorePointer. Corepointer is always
switchable but not SendCoreEvents or the device which is not in xorg.conf.

I think there is a problem when you add 3 devices in your xorg.conf - X did not
start. Maybe it's a limitation of X server!?

What works:

CorePointer Trackpad -> Switchable
Touchpad not in xorg.conf -> Switchable
USB/PS2 mouse not in xorg.conf -> Switchable


SendCoreEvents -> Trackpad goes behaves crazy (see *)
SendCoreEvents -> Touchpad not switchable
SendCoreEvents -> External USB mouse behaves crazy (see *)


Even if my external PS2/USB mouse is damaged, switching to left handed mouse
for Trackpad AND Touchpad on Thinkpad does NOT work. Trackpad and Touchpad are
integrated my notebook - maybe it's not common for Thinkpads but Z61m has both.

I think it's a Xorg problem - under Ubuntu switching to left handed mode
doesn't work, too.

Totally crazy that one configuration works for my Thinkpad (Trackpad in
xorg.conf, Touchpad and external USB/PS2 mouse not in xorg.conf) and not for
Aspire, when only inserting Touchpad in xorg.conf and leaving other input
device out of xorg.conf.
