|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:
|"xdotool mouseup 1 keyup alt &"
Alt + b:9 + release
"xdotool keydown alt mousedown 1 &"
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.
