Changing middle mouse button for pasting to right mouse button in cygwin rxvt

Hi, I'm using rxvt in Cygwin and I'm wondering how to change my mouse bindings from the middle button for pasting to the right button. The main reason why I want to do this is because my laptop doesn't have a middle mouse button. Thanks for any help!

You should have a 'middle click' emulation activated on your X installation.

Usually emulation happens when you right click, keep the right click pressed, then left click. That should emulate the middle click.

Or vice versa the right and left.

Good luck

Thanks, but I tried that, and somehow it doesn't work.... do you know possibly where I can find the config file with the keys/mouse buttons emulation information?
