Still hoping to have the option on by default as per X standards.
Comment 2 Zdenek Kabelac 2013-07-23 11:44:25 EDT
So I've add "gtk-enable-primary-paste = 1" to my:


which has restored NORMAL behavior.

So now I just hope, it's been just a mistake, that default is Off.
Comment 3 Zdenek Kabelac 2013-07-23 11:52:32 EDT
Changing to gtk3 component, since it's not related to gnome-terminal.

Since it's my last used tool from the Gnome, I've not had a chance to notice problems in other apps.

Comment 4 Kalev Lember 2013-08-23 07:32:49 EDT
Middle click paste is now enabled by default again at upstream and I've backported this to the Fedora packages as well.

Fixed in gtk3-3.9.12-1.fc20 and gnome-settings-daemon-3.9.90-2.fc20
