Gobi7: Day 29: Highlight / Paste

So one of the features that I love and can't live without in X is the ability to highlight some text and then with the click of the center (third) mouse button paste it. That is all well and good until one only has two mouse buttons. On the Gobi I can \*not\* get it figured out if there is an extra key combo that will emulate the third mouse button or something. So I have resorted to using an external three button mouse so I don't lack the love to highlight/paste.

For what it's worth.

Comments:

Isn't it as easy as with X on any other two mouse machine i.e. press _both_ buttons and you get the middle one. Works on any modern Solaris I've used, both CDE and Gnome/JDS.

Thommy,

What is a great thought but no joy. I even tried that trick w/ multi key combinations as well.
