howto, kde konsole copyand paste


Hi,

I use my kde apps pretty much like my windows apps, and I do alot of copy and paste with the ctrl+c and ctrl+v keys.

I cannot paste into KDE Konsole however. Vim is also a problem. Does anybody have any advice for pasting from X based apps to terminal based apps?

Normally, I simply highlight whatever I want to copy and then click my scroll button to paste it. This works with all apps.

Ah yes, I seem to recall something about the 3rd mouse button (the "scroll" one, I take it) being indispensible, and me thinking that exaggerated.
Of course, I have a two button mouse, but I'll have to test this simultaneous click feature, which in Windows anyway, simulates the third button. Many thanks for reply Xavier.

My biggest problem! Just ahead of not using mouse gestures after an Opera browsing session!
