copying and pasting in aterm?


How do I copy and paste in aterm? I recently switched to fluxbox, thus away from konsole, and was just wondering if there is a simple way to copy from aterm. I need this so I can post code errors and stuff online(here, etc.)


Thanks in advance.

I've tried that, it didn't seem to work. Is there another way?

They way I usually do it is highlight the text you want to copy, hold down shift and left click to copy it (this will not output it back to the cursor location like if you were to middle click on the highlighted text). Since I have a 3 button mouse (scroll wheel) I middle click/click the scroll button and it pastes it.

From the "Faq" file that comes with aterm:

Quote:
Q: Mouse cut/paste suddenly no longer works.

A:Make sure that mouse reporting is actually turned off since killing some editors prematurely may leave the mouse in mouse report mode. I've heard that tcsh may use mouse reporting unless it otherwise specified. A quick check is to see if cut/paste works when the Alt or Shift keys are depressed. See doc/refer.txt

I tried the middle click option yesterday and it works(I'm not sure what happened the first time I tried it). However, using Shift+Left Click didn't. Thanks
