    so all the Opera lovers i need help.
    i gave a try to Opera today and want to use mouse gestures but i have a problem.
    actually i use left-handed mouse but the mouse gestures seem to have been made just for the right-handed people. i feel pretty awkward in clicking my left click (the opposite one for me) every time i want to perform a gesture.
    is there a way to change the same...i have tried looking through the settings but was unable to find it.

    any help will be appreciated :cheers:

    thanx for the reply pal :cheers:
    i hope you meant preferences --> Mouse and keyboard (i m using v7.10).
    i did check there earlier but it just allows me to configure back and forward gestures. wat abt other ones like open, close, open in new window, minimize and all?
    i am not able to find the way to change them :(

    hmm...so i guess i am stuck there.
    well i hope someone from Opera is hearing and they plan to add features for those who use left handed mouse as that mouse gesture is a really good idea.
    anyways...thanx for the reply :cheers:

    So you're wanting the functions of the buttons switched for your mouse? Why not just have Windows do this for you and switch the left/right functions of the mouse within the OS itself. This would give you the desired effect and you wouldn't have to worry about custom settings in all your programs. ;)

    i have already done that darth :)

    actually thats how i use it all the time but the thing is that when it comes to mouse gestures Opera doesn't recognise right mouse button as my active button. it seems to have all the mouse gestures made specifically for the left button. when i try to use gestures with right button (the active one in my case) it won't work but when i do the same with left button it works effortlessly. other functions like clicking on link and all is no problem, its just this mouse gesture thing.

    this is why i wanted to know that is there a specific setting that i have to change or something like that :cheers:
