How do I enable middle mouse button click paste?

After one of the latest updates I lost the middle mouse paste option,
I’m so used to it so wants it back, how ?
No option in system-settings-input device mouse, in Desktop Folder settings, Mouse-action Middle-button is set to paste. Didn’t work anymore.

KDE plasma ver.5.21.2 kernel5.11.2-1

Hi @trygvese ,
I don’t see the mouse middle action button. on System Settings / Input Device / Mouse / General thereis an option which says: Press Left and Right buttons for middle click. I am on the same KDE plasma version as you.
Hope it help, regards

It might be this solution :slight_smile:

The long answer:
See this post.

The short answer:
Edit $HOME/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc and change MidButton to MiddleButton.


Right click the desktop and select Configure Desktop and Wallpaper > Mouse Actions. Remove the Middle-Button and add it back. It will be added back correctly.
