I recently installed vim on Ubuntu (14.04) with Unity. As it turns out, vim does not support yanking text to the clipboard (usind
*). I read here that I have to install GVim in order to add this capability to vim.
apt-cache search I did not find a package named
gvim but the two packages
vim-gtk. As I understand it, those are two different types of graphical interface. Since I use Ubuntu with Unity, I am unsure which one is suitable for me.
What exactly are the differences between those two packages and which one can I use?
