Urxvt- use keysym to remap insert shift(paste buffer)?

I have a new install and my right touch pad button doesn't paste like on my other installs. Instead I have to use shift-insert. Does anyone know the keysym statement that can remap shift insert to my right touchpad button(laptop)?

Normally, it should work by pressing both left and right button at once. But to remap the button, just use xmodmap

keycode 106 = exclam Insert
watch out, this is global. Replace "106" with keycode acquired with the "xev" command. Place "Insert" as the first argument after "=" if you want it to be directly accessible. In the example above, it will be shift+#106
