AutoClipX makes copy and pasting just about as simple as it could possibly be… — Lifehacker

Introduction

Copy and paste… with your mouse! Featuring ClipMan, AutoPaste, and AutoWin

AutoClipX automatically copies content you select with your mouse, while pasting is accomplished by simply clicking a mouse button (the middle button by default). Linux users who are accustomed to automatic copying in the X Window System will appreciate what AutoClipX has to offer, while Windows users will enjoy the enhanced clipboard functionality.
