Paging all Mac gurus

by Suw on May 29, 2005

I used to run UControl on my PowerBook, which allowed me to both switch my USB mouse to left-handed and remap the Mac's fn-delete (i.e. delete the character to the right of the cursor) to shift-delete. UControl doesn't work in Tiger, and I can't find a way to remap fn-delete to shift-delete. I know I could use ctrl-D instead, but that doesn't seem to work in FireFox.
The trouble with the fn-delete combination is that those keys are as far apart on the Mac keyboard as it is possible to get, residing as they do in opposite corners. I write so much, and am so used to shift-delete, that it's really frustrating to have to switch over to a clumsy and awkward set of key-strokes instead of my nice, smooth, one-handed shift-delete.
Does anyone have a fix for me?
