Yeah I'm down with that idea, I didn't say give up. I like the idea of
only changing xterm, because the right click is so useful everywhere else
you would not want to remap it globally...
Looking manpage for xterm I didn't see a resource, (there may be one not
listed?) but there's an example that has some potential, but on a quick
test here, it pastes after a right/left combination of clicks...
*VT100*translations: #override \n\
<Btn3Up>: insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0) \n\
T test or refine the settings, you can drop similar snippets into
~.Xresources and run
$ xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
as your regular user and they take affect on next xterm opened. The local
Xresources file is usually read on login, but I think some display
managers do bypass it.
