Re: cutting and pasting with keyboard

Thanks Teika,

I wonder, if there is a "x-get-selection", why is there no

and why is there no sawfish function "paste-primary-selection"?

I am starting to develop a weird type of "thumb tendonitis" on a X201
tablet (it is wider than my x61 tablet, and I think that is putting
stress on my thumb). Anyways, what I need is a way to avoid using the
trackpoint buttons as much as I can. So I'll keep fighting ;)
