    Xorg's copy and paste system features a handy way of quickly pasting text by selecting what you want to copy and then clicking the middle mouse button in the area you want the text to be inserted. Most X applications are also aware of this behavior.

    You can enable a mode to allow yourself to take advantage of this with the two buttoned touch pad. Simple edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the "Emulate3Buttons" option for the mouse to "yes" and re-start the system. They you can select text from almost any application with the right touch pad button and paste it at the mouse-cursor position in most other applications by pressing both the left and right touch pad buttons together.
