    I can copy and paste in using control shift c and v in a Ubuntu terminal window, but I cannot copy and paste in xterm’s or other applications. Also I cannot find how to get the middle or right buttons. I use a trackpad.

    Thank you,

    Ron Cohen

    Hello Ron,

    Your problem seems to be related to the fact that you use a trackpad.

    Can you tell us what kind of notebook/laptop you are using ?

    To solve the problem in xterm, we suggest you try the solution explained here: https://huyouncic.wordpress.com/2012/07/04/use-right-button-to-paste-on-xterm/

    Another possibility is to enable the setting “Emulate middle button” in the player, using right and left button at the same time.

    There are no buttons on a trackpad. How do I do right and left at the same time? I have this problem both on a new Mac Pro running Yosemite and on a MacBook Air running Mavericks 10.9.5 . Ron

    Hello Ron,

    You could try the application MagicPrefs (here: http://magicprefs.com/).

    It’s a free application for OS X which aims to improve the functionality and configuration options of the Apple Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad and the MacBook glass trackpad.

    It features the ability to bind a variable number of finger clicks, taps, swipes, pinch and other gestures to functions like Middle Click, Hold Down Both Mouse Buttons, Spaces, Expose, Dashboard, Recent Applications, Tweet, Read Tweets, Google Reader etc.
