Middle mouse button stopped pasting on fedora?

0 votes

For some reason unbeknownst to me, the middle button on my mouse no longer pastes texts into terminal windows, emails, or anywhere else it use to after I highlight text.

Everything else on my mouse appears to work just fine. I haven't applied any updates. Actually, I decided to update my desktop and rebooted after this problem appeared.

I'm running Fedora 20. I know, it's getting long in the tooth. I am actually going to install the latest and greatest soon, but not for another month or so.

I'd really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction to get this annoying issue resolved.

If nothing else, you should update your system to see if that makes any  difference.

because you do not mention if button works anywhere else, one direction is to know if button does work.

I would like to be able to copy-paste text without transferring the format. Im using F19 with KDE.

Currently, when I copy-paste (between Firefox, LibreOffice, etc), formatting like font, font size and font attributes get also copied and pasted. But I am looking for a way to copy-paste such that the format of the original text is discarded and instead the format of the target document is used, as if I had typed the text on the keyboard.

Installed Fedora 26 on recommendation of a Scribus developer. Installed about 30 packages per his advice.

But when I try to compile a program the machine can't find C++. So what is the package I need to install to compile C++ programs?.

Another question. On Slackware (yes I am one of those) I can use kdm to get to a window function ( I preferXFCE). How do I set up a window manager in Fedora and how do I access it?

I observe 2 different behaviors of vi that I cannot explain. 2 different machines, same distribution

On one machine when I underline some text with the mouse (not in append mode), vi turns to a VISUAL mode, and not in the other machine.
