Bug Description

>> Coming from putty I deeply miss my right click == paste functionality.
>> I'm on ubuntu karmic now and I cannot seem to get this functionality - is it possible to do with terminator?
> X (Linux's display manager) has two clipboards.
> If you just select some text and do nothing else, you can paste it by just clicking the middle mouse button.
> This is called the selection buffer and is separate from the full clipboard that is controlled by
> the Copy/Paste features of applications.
> In theory we could add a feature for a one click paste, but it would interfere with our existing context menu.
> Feel free to convert this question into a bug report and I'll mark it as a Wishlist item -
> maybe there's a way to work it in somehow :)

OK, here is the bug report. I was thinking maybe Ctrl+RightClick could bring up the normal context menu if the user chooses to bind paste functionality to RightClick.

In any case, thanks for your help and thanks for the great software!
