Once upon a time, to get middle-click functionality from a two-button trackpad, I used to stick a a line in xorg.conf like

"Emulate3Buttons" "true"

But I find that xorg.conf doesn't seem to be used anymore...
Dexconf is also missing.

I realize it's nobody's fault here, but has anyone else noticed, and managed to correct the problem with no middle click on armhf ssd install?

You can still make your own xorg.conf and put in the emulate3button option. If you plan on using the drivers from genesi you'll probably need to create one anyhow:

I can't remember what section it is under, so you'll need to create that section and put it in manually.

What xorg will do is autodetect whatever is not in the configuration file.

A quick googling around found this:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# generated from default
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

EndSection
I haven't tried it myself, so don't know if it works, or more information is needed in xorg.conf.

Seems like all you need is this:
Code:
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "whatever"
MatchIsPointer "on"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
EndSection
In /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Works for me.
