I am trying to copy from the terminal with xclip and paste it into the unity desktop environment into gedit text editor. I can copy and paste with xclip in terminal:
$ cat line-size.c | xclip xclip -o > input5.txt cat input5.txt #include <stdio.h> ...
However, when I press control + v to paste into gedit, it only pastes the actual last thing I copied within unity desktop, such as something from firefox browser.
How can I paste in gui applications something I copied from terminal?
