In Less (Linux terminal), I can select lines with the mouse and then use Ctrl+Shift+C to copy to the clipboard. This only works within the displayed part of the terminal. How can I select more text? Are there any keyboard shortcuts for selecting text, such as select to the end or beginning or one page, etc.?
I'm not sure just what setting I'm missing. Whenever I CTRL-click to select more than one item, whether it's in chromium or thunar, it doesn't seem to work. shift-click works fine to select a range, but I can't select individual items with ctrl-click.
Something happened to my keyboard and or mouse controls. I have a Logitech T-BB18 trackwheel and an hp NY418AA Keyboard. When I use the mouse in Windows mail and click the delete button it deletes two emails instead of one and opens all the emails that I have selected when I ctrl + click on multiple emails to select them.
I'm using zsh + rxvt-unicode as a terminal simulator in Archlinux. I've successfully setup navigation in the terminal using Ctrl+Arrow keys, but i can't setup the terminal to be able to select text when pressing Shift + Arrow (or Ctrl + Shift + Arrow to select the whole word). After several days of searching for solution I couldn't find one.
For a while since I've switched to Ubuntu from Windows, I've been wondering about this. In windows, you can select an item in a listbox, hold Ctrl+Shift, then select another item, and all the items between the two that you selected will also be selected (see the picture below).
