Default Cut and Paste with aterm

I've installed 4.3 in my laptop and running Fluxbox with great success but I cannot cut and paste in aterm. I'm using an old HP Pavillion n5445 laptop which has three mouse buttons.

Select text and press the mouse wheel to paste?

I for the longest time used aterm, but now I just use xterm... aterm offers nothing special really, besides the pseudo-transparency that's not all that impressive after a few days.

The copy and paste functionality is slightly different then that of xterm, but conceptually similar.. should be easy to work it out.

As a matter of fact, I start to like rox-term which also has tabbed terminals, uses GTK and has most of the gnome-terminal or xfce4-terminal (Terminal) editable properties.
I like rox

The right click feature to copy and paste doesn't work on my laptop's mouse. I also have this issue in xterm as well. I can use the right click cut and paste in open office apps but I need this to work in CLI land. I will try rox-term.

X applications don't use the right mouse button for copy and paste events, toolkits like GTK do, to mimic Windows behaviour.

You can also try control+insert depending on where the data to paste is stored.
