Linux - choose which clipboard to paste into
« on: February 16, 2018, 02:12:17 pm »
In Linux X windows, there are 2 clipboards.

Depending on which clipboard I want to paste from, in a konsole window I either press middle mouse button or Ctrl+Shift+V to decide which clipboard to paste from.

SE seems to always choose the clipboard that I paste from using Ctrl+Shift+V.

Would be nice if there was an option to decide which clipboard to use for copy/cut with options:

copy/cut contents go into clipboard that uses middle mouse button for paste
copy/cut contents go into clipboard that uses Ctrl+Shift+V for paste
copy/cut contents go into both clipboards

This way when I won't use the wrong clipboard so much when pasting into konsole windows.
