Greetings,

I recently rebuilt my machine (easiest way to clean out the OS and fix some wonkyness after the last update) as well as installed Gentoo on a old laptop. Anyway, for some reason my desktop (probably as retaliation) will no perform the copy and paste functions within X but it does just fine within console, outside of that the mouse works fine. I have never had this problem before in my years with any distro of Linux so I have no idea where to look. The laptop that is running the same X setup works as expected with the copy/paste functionality. I am using the same make.conf but no xorg.conf.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, after some various testing, I discovered that my problem is the mouse itself. The paste function actually works as long as I hold the scroll wheel down for several seconds, and the paste occurs upon release of the wheel. My laptop mouse works like it is supposed to by pasting immediate, while my desktop mouse takes its time.

Any ideas how I can fix this, the only thing I can think of would be settings in the xorg.conf, but I am not sure what the settings would be.

Thanks in advance.
