What have you tried? In Gnome, you can try System --> Preferences
--> Hardware --> Mouse - it works for me.

Just for clarity, Lawrence already reported that this problem is on F11
Preview. I was able to duplicate the problem on my system. I tested it
to make sure, even though I am not left handed.

...That wound up sounding like a line from a favorite movie of mine. :)

There's more to this than meets the eye, I just tried on fc11 and it worked fine for me, and instantly. I clicked left-handed and had to right click to exit the pop-up. That machine hasn't been updated in 12 hours or so, but it's relatively current.

I just did the system->pref->mouse thing. I looked at the top post in this and it wasn't clear if the choice wasn't offered or it didn't work:

  "I am still not able to choose left-handed or right-handed at mouse
  control."

I think there was an earlier post on this to the testing list, it sounds familiar.

If the choice is not offered then I would look in the entrails of the Xorg log and see what kind of mouse it thinks you have. Clearly if it believes you have a Mac one button mouse or such, it isn't "handed" to change.

Anyway, it works just fine using the procedure you specified on F10.
However, the same procedure on F11 Preview fails. We should probably
move this thread to fedora-test-list instead.

Cheers,

Chris
