A keyboard shortcut to do the same thing as the middle mouse button paste


A keyboard shortcut to do the same thing as the middle mouse button paste

My middle mouse button is awful, every time I press it it just scrolls up or down, making it very difficult to paste text. Is there a keyboard shortcut that can do the same thing?

CTRL-V
Or, if you have this in your xorg.conf, pressing L&R buttons = Middle button press
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
