Am I being dumb ? AFAIK my N810 doesn't have a mouse wheel or mouse 
buttons - I can tap on the screen = mouse 1, and there's a joystick ring
on the slide-out keyboard mapped to Up, Down, Left, Right and Enter.
Various other buttons (fullscreen, zoom in etc.) map to F5, etc.

(I meant that I was using the tablet to access an app on a server or 
desktop, not using the desktop to access an app on the tablet. Or, I 
might port some desktop app to the tablet that uses mouse 2/3)

(does it, perchance, support a Bletooth mouse ? I presume it would if one 
can use a BT keyboard)

Well, yes. I just meant that if I wanted to save an image I could 
do tap-and-hold to bring up the menu that I would get with mouse-3 on 
my desktop.
