Suddenly the mouse middle button paste feature does not work in Bluefish and OpenOffice. It is driving me crazy. I have become so used to this feature I am constantly forgetting to ctl c/v to cut and paste.
It works everywhere else. ( For example, I can use it in this text box that I am typing this message in. ) and when I select text in either Bluefish or OpenOffice it shows up in Klipper. Strangely, if I select that text in Klipper I can paste it into either application with the middle button.
This just started a few days ago. I have no idea what changed on my system. It is a KDE4 desktop, if that is relevant.
I just upgraded to FC14 (64) from FC13 (32) and the mouse middle button (simultaneous left+right button) paste function has stopped working. I tested it with 3 makes/models of different mice and trackballs. For some reason (left+right) mouse returns the same code as the single right-button ('xev' value = 3). This worked in all previous FC and RH distros I've used in the past. Did a default setting get zonked somewhere? System: Toshiba laptop w/ USB mouse.
I just upgraded to 10.04 (and a new machine) from 8.04 and I can't seem to find a way to have the middle button on my mouse act as a double click like I had it on my old machine. I tried putting the input stanza from my old xorg.conf but then X would not come up. The new tab thing it does in Nautilus is driving me nuts. I see the xorg.conf isn't really used anymore, and there is something about making rules in udev but I can't seem to find the exact wording that I need to make that one rule. I would also like to disable the CAPS LOCK key if anyone knows how to do that without xorg.conf. Maybe someone can point me to a udev tutorial?
I found the paste function of the center button is really annoying. Usually I use the center button to scroll up and down inside an editor, but when I scroll really fast occasionally I would press down the center button. The editor ended up paste whatever on the clipboard. Is there a way to disable it? I want the center button to function only like a scroll bar, no paste.
In Google Chrome Beta and in Epiphany, I am able to scroll through the different tabs with the middle mouse button. However, this doesn't happen in Firefox. Is there any way to implement a feature like this in Firefox?
I want to be able to auto scroll by clicking my middle mouse button. In Firefox you can do this in the about:config easily, but with Google Chrome, I don't know what to do.
There is no Chrome option to allow this, so I guess I'd have to configure some stuff. Does anyone know how to do this? I really prefer Chrome over Firefox, and would like to go back to it, but can't without auto scroll.
Ive been using opensuse for a little while now. Recently ran into a problem My favorite mouse broke, so i went out and got a travel one. It has a very toucht third button under the scroll wheel. Apperently this button is to paste, but every time i scroll, it makes my life miserable, especially when im reading a lengthy page in firefox. I cannot figure out how to program the buttons. Ive googled, and seen some programs that MIGHT help. but this seems to be something that is built in to the OS. The mouse yast plugin doesnt give you the choice of shuting off the third button, or even reassigning it. I want the paste functionality GONE from my **** mouse
I would like to say that I have tried searching for a possible solution on this, and I may be wrong, but I haven't found anything on it. Anyhow, I am here because I would like to know if there is a way to enable the "scroll wheel" in Firefox, like in Windows, on Ubuntu 10.04.
I have a question - how to disable the left mouse button in Fedora 14? I do not mean to replace the buttons, only the total exclusion of the left button. I mean that as a result of a error mouse clicks itself, so I swapped it in Preferences on the right and now I want to disable. I would be very grateful if you would tell me how to do it. Maybe should I replace left mouse button with middle mouse button? But how to do it?
Since the update to Squeeze, I've lost the ability to paste text by pressing both right and left mouse buttons. I'm using an EeePC, so I have no middle (scroll) button. I use this a lot,because I copy-and-paste IPA pronunciations of words onto worksheets I use at the school I work for*. *input the IPA symbols myself aside from choosing them from lists of symbols in LibreOffice excruciating when you've got to do it every day...
Running Ubuntu Studio 10.04 with an MS wireless notebook optical mouse 4000. By default, my thumb button is acting as a "Forward" button, but I want it to be my "Back" button. I have not installed anything like imwheel, nor do I want to, especially because the button support is obviously already there, it just needs to be configured to a new command. My xorg.conf looks like this (at least the parts of it that I think are relevant,
I have tried messing with Emulate3Buttons and the ZAxisMappings, but there were no changes. Please tell me if I am in the right place? Or is there another program or something running already that is controlling my mouse.

I have been searching for a way to disable middle click in Ubuntu, but all the websites I came across say to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. but when I open that file in Gedit there is no input device section as described in post #3 @ [URL] all I have in xorg.conf is
I have just installed openSuse 11.4 on my Acer Aspire 5738Z. When I click on the action button included in the bottom panel, I expect to open a windows asking me if I want to shut down, restart, or log off. But unfortunately, when I click on it, I am not offered any option and I get immediately logged off. I removed the button from the panel and installed it again, but it still dysfunctions.
When I highlight text, then click both mouse buttons, I expect the highlighted text to be retyped where the cursor is. It has always worked that way! But in Fedora 15, the two-finger click just summons the right-clicky menu for a microsecond, then hides it. How can I restore the proper operation of the two-button click in Fedora 15?
