When I copy something from another window and do "+gP gVim says 'Nothing in register g' but when I go to Edit_>Paste it does paste the text from the another window.

I'm using ubuntu 10.10.

Any suggestions?


The register you want to use is not g but +. So it looks like the +-sign is ignored/not typed at all.

:reg shows you the register-content.
