Exclamation Eterm Copy/Paste - Urgent


Stupid question, but I'm new to Eterm. For some reason, I have no menus or anything under any terminal (I'm using WindowMaker) ... and I'm unable to copy/cut/paste anything from one window to the next. Does anyone know how to change this or enable this in Eterm, so it will go to the clipboard and then paste again?

Acid_Kewpie, be nice... or I will make a trip to England and spank you. Always wanted to visit England, your giving me an excuse to come..

Sorry but you have to get use to Acid ( as most that been around are already ) or just ignore him at times, but yet again he is expressing that Urgent in your headers or messages are usually annoying to people answering questions here on their own free time and will, and it might deter them from answering if they have a correct answer as no one here is a top priority, but everyone here is treated equally.
If someone knows the answer great, but if not, it might go unanswered and its something we have to deal with. So please refrain from putting Urgent anywhere as everyone has problems and should be answered fairly, no one here is above any other.

Sidenote, Acid is very knowledgeable and does give very good technical advice. Some posts might be pointless but his technical outnumbers the pointless as we all have those here and there.

Your Moderator,

Well, It was suggested a bit strongly.

I think it was however, some good advice.
Sometimes the simple operator problems become annoying if they have been gone over several times.


I am sure you have found the answer above by Scotty and figured it out by now, but just in case your still having problems...


select the text you want to copy, then click where you want to paste with the middle mouse button.
