Is there a way to make clicking the middle mouse button NOT move the cursor,
i.e. just paste wherever the cursor currently is?

Sorry if this is wrong forum. Seemed better to make mistake in Newcomers Forum than anywhere else and I did't see a better place.

I assume you mean inside Eclipse.

It might be your fault: mine (openSuSE, Ubuntu/GNOME, Mint/Cinnamon)
behaves exactly as you describe you want it to behave. I know that
different mouse middle buttons/scroll wheels can be a bit squirrelly.

Then again, you might be trying to describe something else entirely.

Ya, I do mean inside eclipse.

I'm running Mint/Mate. For emacs to behave like I want, I have to add this to .emacs :
(setq mouse-yank-at-point t)

I'm guessing/hoping there is some equivalent in eclipse. Googling just gives me 9000 people that
want to disable middle-button paste altogether.

I use both vim and Eclipse, almost exclusively these days on Mint, and I
experience no trouble at all. I'm using various Logitech wireless mice,
but I've used other mice too.

I've never encountered such a setting in Eclipse.
