I am using XFCE with slackware 10.0 and I do not know how to do quick edit with the mouse under xterm. Everytime I have either export the result as text via pipe redirection and fire up GVIM to do copy and paste or simply capture the screen using GIMP.
Select the text in xterm with the mouse than middle click in another location (in a window text input, like a text editor window). You can also do reverse (select text in editor window and middle click on xterm)
just as a point of clarification (because i'm pedantic), a wheel mouse is actually not a 2-button mouse, it's a 5-button mouse. pushing down the wheel button is 3, and scrolling up or down is 4 or 5, respectively. your xorg.conf will reflect this with a line about 5 buttons, and one about z-axis mapping "4 5" or something, i forget the exact code. anyway, if you don't have a wheel mouse, but an actual 2-button mouse, you can paste by pushing both buttons at the same time (instead of the wheel mouse button).
