Bug Description

Using Ubuntu 11.10

On the control panel where the "Mouse and Touchpad" settings are, the "Right-handed" option is on the left side of the "Left-handed" option, which is on the right of the "Right-handed" option. This seems slightly strange in my opinion, as one would think that the left-handed option is on the left side, opposed to where it currently is.

I'm currently working on it and haven't tested it yet. I'll upload a patch which _might_ work, but not too sure. I'll link my branch, too. I'll try it later.
