Can we please have an option in settings to disable the middle click paste shortcut?
In which DE? In Gnome, there is an option in Tweaks (
gnome-tweaks) under “Keyboard and Mouse”.
The middle mouse paste buffer is really hardcoded in the system.
I wonder if somebody will bring you solution.
Maybe if you would be willing to sacrifice the middleclick alltogether.
EDIT: or isntall the sxhkd but still uggly solution
Impossible to answer question without knowing what Desktop (window manager - xwindows or wayland) is being used, like @flibby.jibbit mentioned.
KDE has an option in settings. KDE Doc - KDE Mouse Actions -
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/IMWheel - is a tool for tweaking mouse wheel behavior, on a per-program basis.
In the archived manjaro forum - How to deactivate middle mouse button paste -
There were more search hits at the archived forum:
PS: Seems to be a problem with the forum. Can’t not add hyperlinks.
Doesn’t that disable middle click altogether? The advantage of the sxhkd method is that it doesn’t disable middle click, just the pasting.
I have a slightly different question to this, but I didn’t think it was different enough so as to start a new thread.
I am on KDE Plasma, and sometime ago there was a keybinding that when clicking the middle-click on the desktop, a sticky note widget appeared. This is no longer possible. Do you know if and how I can bring it back? The ‘Right-click>Configure Desktop>Mouse Actions and delete middle-button’ advice I have found for the opposite of what I want, can’t be used because the set of actions in the respective menu is standard.
Is there a way or should I try something custom?
Sorry for jumping in.
