I've seen quite a lot of posts about this in Ubuntu forums and also here, but I couldn't find any working solution for that.

I'd actually try to do something like:

Code:
"xdotool mouseup 1 keyup alt &"
  Alt + b:9 + release

"xdotool keydown alt mousedown 1 &"
  b:9


but this doesn't seem to work. This is definitely possible to be done, though I'm not sure if X itself allows it. Enlightenment allows a "equivalent" functionality since DR18 at least, but I don't think it relies on xinput.
