[vox-tech] Re: Logitech mouseman and XF86Config-4

Dear Mike,

Back in Davis, for a few days anyway.

My usual mouse (the RemotePoint mouse) is a two-button mouse, so
perhaps the above config. needs adjusting.  However, it wasn't just
pasting that was a problem but basic mouse movement.  On the plus
side, the Logitech mouse now pastes with the middle button.  (I also
changed XF86Config-4 as below.)
