I solved the third-button problem as follows:

Create as root a new file /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if it does not exist) and copy in it the following to emulate third button:

	Section "InputClass"
	    Identifier "middle button emulation class"
	    MatchIsPointer "on"
	    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
I forget if you have to restart X to activate.
