[Solved] Mouse Configuration


Hello, I’m looking to configure my USB mouse(I’m using a laptop and I only want this for my USB mouse) so that it can be used left handed. I know there are simple ways to do this on Gnome or other desktop environments, but I’m only using the i3 window manager right now. I’ve looked up some stuff but I can’t figure out what to do.

A simple search on Startpage comes up with many solutions such as https://askubuntu.com/questions/151819/how-do-i-swap-mouse-buttons-to-be-left-handed-from-the-terminal. I was curious as I am left handed but don’t alter the mouse.


Thanks, I must’ve overlooked this. The solution with xinput worked for me.
