Ubuntu – How to change the alt+middle-mouse-button resize to alt+right-mouse-button


I love how you can resize windows by pressing alt+middle-mouse-button and drag.

Though now I got a mouse which doesn't support pressing the middle mouse button..

How do I do to change the combination from alt+middle-mouse-button to alt+right-mouse-button?

(On Ubuntu 11.04 with unity)
