X style cut & paste not working


I have made some modifications on my X configuration and after that a strange problem arised.
Cutting using selecting some text and pasting with middle mouse button stopped working.

I have no clue where to even start looking.

Thanks for the help

Hello Well you can start by telling us what kind of a mouse you have and posting your XF86Config. Well actually I think that it's quite long so just post the mouse part of it

Hi,
I think you should first make a copy of your present XF86Config file that you can return to in case my advice is bogus.

<cp XF86Config XF86Config.save> or something like that.

Then you might edit your working XF86Config file and change the line:

Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
to
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"

There are two sections with this line in it. I believe that you want to change the one referring to /dev/psaux
