    Xterm window


    Hi folks,

    How to copy content of Xterm window on Editor such as Nano, Vim, etc and on web mail. Highlighting the text and press right/left button of mouse does not work (my mouse does not have middle button). The above only works on the same Xterm not even on another Xterm.

    TIA

    Hilight the text, then middle-click where you want it to go. It works every time for me.

    Oops... Just reread that and saw you don't have a middle click.
