select, copy and paste


Hi all,

I've just installed slackware 8.1, loving it of course, however, i'm having a few problems copying and pasting. I'm using a Dell Laptop and when i was using other distros i could copy and paste selecting some text and then pressing two mouse buttons or in a desktop using the middle button. Great!, however, now i can't do the same, really missing that simple and nice feature. Where should i look for that?
thanks,
lusko

you need to put the following line for two-button mouse in the InputDevice section pertaining your mouse
Option "Emulate3buttons"
