Slackware Undocumented 'Well Duh' Quark #2917 - console vim and X11 clipboard

Posted 03-20-2009 at 11:41 PM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)

The special registers * and + do not function in console vim in Slackware. Vim has been compiled both with -clipboard and -xterm_clipboard. If you enable GPM, you can shift highlight in console vim to middle click past in any x application. You can also Shift+middle click in console vim to past text from any x application.

It is very cute. It's an Asus 1000HE. Asus has ceased to ship these things with Linux, so this has the mephitic Windows XP on it. No! The lousy! It burns!

My initial plan is to get Slackware loaded onto the new machine (whether using Slackeee or some other method is as...

In the coming months...

Over the next couple of months, I will be making a small but potent website based around my knowledge of the Slackware operating system. It will pose as a reference for myself and hopefully be able to answer questions for those in need. I have a few scripts, and a couple how-tos that are works in progress so just keep your eyes open for this one, should be a good reference for Slackware and linux users alike.

First

I would like to post a wish list.
If you know of answers to these please post them.

Who needs any non-internet-enable app anyway. I would like to find a simple distro that only comes with a fully capable modern fully integrated internet browser, I don't a somewhat disabled internet browser, because of missing stuff, like flash, media player, gcc or some lib to interpret or compile it.
