People might (should!) be interested in these patches to GTK which allow configuring a keyboard shortcut to paste the primary selection (i.e. the same as pasting with the middle mouse button):
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=643391

Traditionally X applications pasted the primary selection using Shift-Insert.

Must have been before my time Crying or Very sad

Two years have passed and I'm still VERY interested, but I don't see this implemented anywhere. It's odd that pasting the primary selection in X is impossible using the keyboard while 2 keyboard shortcuts are assigned to paste the clipboard.

What do you mean you don't see it implemented? You don't see a patched build of GTK?

I was assuming that such patches finally make it into the official build. I guess I'm wrong Crying or Very sad

Unfortunately these days GTK is more of a 'gnome' toolkit, and the developers of gnome have rather strange ideas about usability Sad
