copy and paste between apps and terminal in fluxbox


How can I copy stuff to and from terminals in fluxbox?

Not clear? I copy url in Firefox, then I want to paste them in xterm, rxvt, etc. And vice-versa. Clear? I hope so.

Select the text with a click-and-drag.

Go to Xterm, press the middle mouse button (or L+R buttons simultaneously if you don't have one)

That's how C&P works in X middle-button pastes whatever was most recently hilighted

Paste in term is Shift+Insert, copy = Ctrl+Ins (I guess)...

Thanks guys, both solution works.

Problems with Ctrl+Ins and Shift+Ins solution:
1. I can copy text OUT of xterm. Although I can copy it and paste it in the xterm itself.
2. When I copy with Ctrl+Ins, I will get ~5 on my prompt, which is rather annoying.

Middle click works everywhere. Just highlight and middle click where you want it to be. And it will be paste there.

Ctrl-C or copy links from Firefox will be paste wherever you middle-click.
