[Solved] Pasting into terminal?

2 day old install, 4.8 over ubuntu 12.04 lts.  Extremely impressed ... it's FAST and extremely configurable.

No big problems at all ... there's a gnome screensaver interfering with xfce but it was suggested to me to install caffeine.

One thing, though ... I can no longer copy and paste text into the terminal (I prefer xterm).  Is this normal?

That's funny, I just recommended Caffeine to someone over at ubuntuforums...

Anyways, a middle mouse button click pastes over highlighted text into xterm for me. If you don't have 3 mouse buttons, simultaneously pressing both the left and right mouse buttons should simulate the third button. Remember to select the text you want copied before attempting the paste.
