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.
