UCS4.3 Copy&Paste (vim) not working (Debian Strech issue)


#1

Hi guys

I just noted this in my updated (from 4.2) 4.3 test-setup.

Using vim to edit a file, i was unable to copy&paste (using putty) from my Windows box.

A quick search offered this:

It seems to be a Debian Strech issue with the vim version, they ship.

Contrary to what they said at Stackexchange, it worked for me by setting the following in .vimrc:

set mouse-=a
syntax on
colorscheme industry

(I didn’t edit the default-file since it is not update-safe)

Hope this helps if somebody of you has the same problem. :slight_smile:

Cheers

Another quick solution is to hold shift while pasting via middle mouse button.
