Button #1 is typically the left mouse button, but a user may remap them (eg. left-handed people with a strong preference for using the mouse in their left hand). "left" and "right" buttons normally have a semantic meaning (e.g. "the button normally used for clicking on things" vs "the button used for context menus etc.") and you cannot hard code these on X Window.  More precisely, if you do hard code them, you disenfranchise a set of users who remap their mouse buttons.

Moreover - why user should care where the signal comes from - mouse or
keyboard?
I just need a proper place to display the context menu and make sure
I can either dismiss it or get the proper action.

Am I missing something?
