I was putty user. Putty allows you to select the text which gets copied to clipboard. Now on ubuntu, I am using Terminal to connect host.
I want to sync clipboard and terminal primary selection. So I want some thing like this 1) Mouse selection of text in Terminal updates clipboard and primary selection (Right now,it just updates primary selection) 2) Any text copy (Via Ctrl + C) outside terminal (some other program) should sync both. Right now it just updates clipboard. e.g. text in gedit
I found various programs like parcellite, Glippy, Pastie, Diodon, Clipit. All this programs are excellent but they have 1 annoying feature (atlest for me). These programs updates both primary and clipboard even if I select any text outside terminal via Mouse. I do not want this feature and I am not able to find any means to turn them off.
For example 1) I select text in terminal via mouse 2) I select text in firefox via mouse <- this will update both clipboard and primary 3) I press Shift + Insert in terminal <- this will paste text from firefox where as I do not want this. Mouse selected text outside terminal should not be reflected in clipboard
Friends do you have any pointers for me. How can I achieve this.I do not want to use Putty in ubuntu as it has very bad UI.
