changing gnome-terminal menus


Hi group,
I would like to alter the mouse-2 button menu that gnome-terminal uses.
Is this an X configuration??

Any URLs?

Thanks for your time.

configuring mouse is in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
what do you mean by altering mouse button?

there is some wizard, but i didn't use it
in terminal type dpkg --reconfigure xserver-org
afterwards restart X with the new configuration by pushing ctrl + bcksp

Don't forget to make backup first.

I'm using Fedora.

What I want to change is the paste command in the mumu that is displayed when you click mouse-2 ( right button for right handed mouse ).
It appears that it can be done with gconf-editor?? Just not sure how.
I have found some posting but they don't have detailed instruction about adding or modifing menu items.
