Natty: Where is my middle mouse button?

Tags Grind My Gears 

I just installed Natty (and gnome3 ppa), everything working fine. But my middle mouse button is not working.
Ok ok, my mouse does not have a middle mouse button, but until now I could always emulate this (have been using this for the past 15 years or so) by pressing both buttons at the same time.
But this does not work anymore. (AAAAAAAAAH) no option in the gnome’s mouse panel. So how the hell do I enable this again?
(I know how todo it in Xorg.conf, but is there an easier way?)

I also changed my 6 year old Hard-disk (that did over 22.000 hours) for a SSD, this is one freaking hell of a difference. LibreOffice starts in < 1 second (cold), firefox is fast, etc. Even the loading of webpages feels a lot faster. So I guess it was worth the money.

edit: Quick fix:
