Are we talking X selection or app selection copy-pasting here? They use different methods and a different clipboard.X selection = mouse highlightapp selection = ctrl-c or edit->copy

I can paste from vim in one terminal window to vim in another, but not to anything outside vim. I've read numerous posts on the subject, and nothing I've found has helped. Copy/pasting from MacVim works, but I prefer using Vim.
With terminals (I use urxvt) another thing you can try is select what you want to copy (no need for Ctrl+C) then paste into the terminal with the mouse wheel.Then:ohnonot wrote:check out the differences between primary and secondary clipboard/selection in linux
