Middle Clicking

I've noticed that in linux, to paste, you can use the middle click button, which is not the behaviour I want from it. I used to think there was no way to change this, but I saw in ubuntu that the middle click works in the way that I'd like it to, by actually sending that signal, rather than pasting.

I assume this is something I have to change in the X config file, but I have no idea what to start searching for. Can anyone shed some light on this problem?
