  Okay so you didn't explain the current state of what works and what
does not work.

  I imagine that both mouses work for movement, but you can not paste
things with the two button mouse (even with pressing both buttons
at once).  If this is correct, then we can get the two button mouse
working for paste as well.

  If the two button mouse pastes as well (with both buttons), we are

  Otherwise you need to explain what is working and what doesn't...

  I meant don't even try the steps below if the conditions above were
not true (both three button mice).
