mrxvt: how to configure clipboard copy and paste

Posted 09-27-2009 at 04:33 PM by catkin

Clipboard paste by Ctrl+Shift+V
Add this line to ~/.mrxvt
Mrxvt.macro.Ctrl+Shift+V: Paste CLIPBOARD
Clipboard copy by Ctrl+Shift+C
  1. Install xclip.
  2. Add this line to ~/.mrxvt
    Mrxvt.macro.Ctrl+Shift+C: Exec !/usr/bin/xclip -o | /usr/bin/xclip -selection clipboard

  • Tested on Slackware 13.0 with mrxvt 0.5.4 and xclip 0.12.
  • Ctrl+Shift+V is configured by default to "Paste X selection into active tab" but there is no loss of functionality;

xclip - Copy contents from command line to X clipboard in openSUSE

xclip is a command line interface to the X11 selections (X11 clipboard). It can also be used for copying files, as an alternative to sftp/scp, thus avoiding password prompts when X11 forwarding has already been setup. xclip reads from Standard Input or from one or more files and copy it to the X11 clipboard making it available to the X applications.Read More

application or any other application. It avoids the need to mess around with saving a temporary file, and sometimes it's the only way to do the job.

The problem is, the clipboard in Linux doesn't...
