    Unhappy Middle mouse button doesn't copy / paste


    After some upgrade (probably sometime in july) the middle mouse button suddenly stopped to copy to clipboard / paste - which is something I am use to for ... well, too many years and really buggs me.
    System is kubuntu, 14.04 - upgraded over the years initially from 12.04 (I think).

    I found some suggestions on the net, tried nearly all, but non had any effect.
    I followed this one for sure Mouse text selection to paste buffer using middle click - Ask Ubuntu and... well, I'm out of solutions and I really can't work like this - and, well, at this point I'm quite desperate. Please, help.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Are you sure the button is working? Have you tried another mouse?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Yes, I am sure - it has other functions also and they are fine...

    So, did it stop immediately after the upgrade, or sometime after?

    I think it was right after it. But the thing is I didn't have the time to pay much attention at the time - it wasn't one of the newest updates, some of the updates in early July did it.
