hi All,

Since performing a clean installation of Ubuntu 16.04, I am unable to use
the mouse wheel to paste in a terminal. It is really annoying!

I am trying to follow the instructions in How to ENABLE paste in terminal
with (middle) mouse button
 - but the gpointing-device-settings
<> is
missing, and after downloading the .deb, it gives me a dependency error
about libgpds0  >= 1.5.0...

I understand this app is related to gnome-settings and it was deleted from
the Xenial repos recently. Is there a way to get it back?!
