xclipboard resolves Aqua-X11 copy/paste barrier
Authored by: m5comp on Oct 05, '04 01:26:37PM
The
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 4 3 2 5"
command didn't work; after I executed that command in xterm, no button produced a middle-click. :-(

After I restarted X11 and began playing around with the mouse buttons, I discovered that button 4 and button 5 send a middle-click by default, without using xmodmap. I wish I'd known that sooner. :-\

Strange. I've just tried it again with a Microsoft mouse and it did work as I said; however, I have never installed any third-party mouse software, MS or otherwise. BTW, although I would still prefer a proper middle button, I've found that some mice I've tried (Logitech and Belkin, specifically) have wheels that are stiffer and less prone to unintentional rotation than the MS mice.
