No middle mouse button? Press in your scroll wheel or click the left+right buttons at the same time

Asked by telman shahbazov on 2012-03-13

Hi,

I have a Logitech Trackman Marble Mouse without middle button.

In ubuntu 10.04 I used to press left+right buttons at the same time instead of pressing middle button for fast pasting abilitiy
And it worked.

But in 11.10 verison it does not work any more.

Could you please advice ?

Regards,
Telman

I followed the documentation on link

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.mouse middle-button-enabled true

this solved the problem.
