The twm+emacs setup that I have used for four decades on all of my Unix and then later Linux machines (dekstops, laptops, PDAs, ...) relies on left/middle/right mouse clicks and ability to type the F1-F12 and Insert keystrokes. Can I do this in DebianTP2? How?

My standard setup (which at this point is neurally encoded) uses F1-F10 to select different (emacs, xpdf, xcalc, ...) windows.

I tried setting up .twmrc with

"F10" = : all : f.warpto "xcalc"
"F10" = s : all : f.warpto "xcalc"
"F10" = m1 : all : f.warpto "xcalc"
"F10" = s | m1 : all : f.warpto "xcalc"

with m1 varying among m2, m3, m4, and m5 but none of them worked. Any ideas?

So my inability to get a right mouse-click to work isn't just my own misconfiguration, it doesn't work for anyone (except for the alternative driver in another thread which uses the touchscreen as a trackpad)?

If anyone knows how to get a right click on the touchscreen, I'd love to hear about solutions! I tried using evdev instead of libinput, but that didn't help (maybe expectedly considering libinput is more modern).

The F1-F12 keys would also be useful to get to. Somewhere I read that you should be able to get them with Fn+Shift+1-12, maybe give that a try. It might work in the native Linux, does not in a chroot running via Android, but maybe that is to be expected. (I decided yesterday to try a chrooted Linux for the time being, as I need newer packages than those provided in stretch and using testing or even stretch-backports seems to break the ability to boot into the native linux.)
