Right click paste instead of scroll wheel paste


Hi

I've just installed Centos 6.3 on my laptop. When I go to the terminal I find that if I highlight text and then want to click-paste, it works with the scroll wheel but not the right mouse button. I'm using an ordinary Logitech two button mouse with the scroll wheel in the middle. Can anyone tell me how to get the paste action to work with the right mouse button instead of the scroll wheel?

thanks

Why do you want that? You'll never be able to right click on things, because it'll just paste the last thing that was highlighted instead of bringing up the right click menu.

I want it as that's what I'm used to. I don't need menus when Im working in a terminal.
