FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE, no gui.
In Linux, I can left-drag to select text in the console, then right-click to paste it to the command line. My FreeBSD Unleashed book says the mouse can be configured to copy and paste from the console in FreeBSD, but darned if I can figure out how to do it.
I've used sysinstall to configure the mouse, I get a Windows-style mouse pointer, I can select text by dragging, but can't paste.
Is there a magic word (Abra-ca-dabra!) one has to mumble to paste in the console?
I have a Logitech trackman marble + (two buttons and a third that is also the wheel) and I just left-drag then middle button (the wheel) click. You might have the same thing if you have a wheel on yours if not then you should be able to press both buttons (left & right) if you are using 3rd button emulation and that should do it for you.
