    Default What does this mean in xmodmap?

    I am really hoping that someone will take pity on me.

    I copy and pasted this command from the internet and then realised I didn't know how to reverse/reset it.

    The idea was to change the behaviour of my mouse temporarily.
    This is the command I used:
    xmodmap -e "pointer = 4 5 3 1 2
    Sorry not in code tags as I am unable to highlight with mouse.
    Thank you very much.

    xmodmap -e pointer = default

    should set it back

    Note I don't think the changes made by xmodmap are persistent so a reboot should reset things also

    Thank you so much. I can't believe I did something so silly. In fact
    Code:
    xmodmap -e "pointer = default"
    worked.

    At least when I try 'speed baking' again, I shall resist the urge to mess with the mouse.
