How to Disable Mousewheel Paste in xorg boot?

This works, You can create this path if it doesn't exist.

~/.config/autostart/.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=xmodmap
Comment=Disable primary selection
Exec=xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 25 3 4 5 6 7 8 9"
Terminal=true
Type=Application

i'm told that might not work in all DM's.
Is there another option?

I was told we can put something into ~/.xprofile, but the above entry fails for me.
Any ideas?

thx

Re: How to Disable Mousewheel Paste in xorg boot?

You might be able to disable it permanently via xorg configuration. Have a look at this page for instructions. It's for ubuntu/debian but should also work for Arch.

Note: this disables the middle mouse button click altogether, which is what the command you are using does as well, I think. I've never seen a "25" in the second spot, it's usually 0 to disable.

Re: How to Disable Mousewheel Paste in xorg boot?

would i replace their button mapping with my pointer values?

Like:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier   "USB Pointer"
    MatchIsPointer "true"
    Option         "ButtonMapping" "1 25 3 4 5 6 7 8 9"
EndSection

and replace their Identifier with my lsusb ID?
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 045e:0009 Microsoft Corp. IntelliMouse

or maybe lspci?
00:1a.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 (rev 03)
00:1a.1 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) USB UHCI Controller #5 (rev 03)
00:1a.7 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #2 (rev 03)

thx!

According to that document, yes. I haven't tested this so it will be interesting to see if it works on your system.

Re: How to Disable Mousewheel Paste in xorg boot?

Here is another link that suggests another option:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev mouse"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option     "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
        Driver     "evdev"
EndSection

Re: How to Disable Mousewheel Paste in xorg boot?

sounds like that will disable wheel-scrolling, which i don't want to disable.
I just want to disable the paste action.

Maybe there are other values available for 'Option'?
Yep, but not sure which one.
https://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.6/doc/ … l#heading5

Option "Emulate3Buttons" "boolean" : Enable/disable the emulation of the third (middle) mouse button for mice which only have two physical buttons. The third button is emulated by pressing both buttons simultaneously.

Sounds a bit different than what i'm looking for...

this is interesting. Not sure if this is any xorg, or just arch:

For input devices the X server defaults to the libinput driver (xf86-input-libinput), but xf86-input-evdev and related drivers are available as alternative.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#Input_devices

Do you think one of the above options (not evdev) are for xf86-input-libinput?

Re: How to Disable Mousewheel Paste in xorg boot?

Maybe specifying the libinput driver is the way to go. See: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Libinput

Libinput also has a button mapping option. So maybe a file with the following contents:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "libinput mouse"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option     "ButtonMapping" "1 25 3 4 5 6 7 8 9"
        Driver     "libinput"
EndSection

Re: How to Disable Mousewheel Paste in xorg boot?

why do you think libinput would be better than evdev?
i want compatibility with older computers, if that matters.
