    Mouse and Pasting


    I am having a problem with my mouse, it has two buttons and a scroll-wheel, also when you click on the wheel it works as an extra mouse button. Problem that I am having is when I am looking through some website and I try to scroll through the page and accidentally push a little to hard on the wheel it takes me to the link thats in the clipboard or some random website. Really is annoying, anyway to disable it, so it would not paste when clicked?

    I'm not sure exactly how, but I'm pretty sure that you can use imwheel to re-map the middle wheel to do something else.
