Also a keyboard issue:-
I can't get Meta+E to launch Nautilus though any ideas on that.
(Meta+T works for terminal so not a keyboard issue)

Ok found the answer myself
open .Xmodmap and change the "3 5 4" to "3 4 5"
so it looks like this now.
pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Turn your screen or mouse (but not both) upside down.

Ha Ha. But it was ONLY the mouse wheel that was backwards. (So called apple Human mode  Crazy) And I fixed it see above.
