Aim: I want to copy my public ssh key generated on AWS Server to my github account.
I have little experience with Ubuntu.
I use the ssh command from my laptop to connect to the AWS Server.
The operating system on both my laptop and AWS Server is Ubuntu trusty tar 14.04.
ssh -i /etc/ssh/aws_myhosts.pem ubuntu@XX.XX.253.101
I want to copy the contents of aws_myhosts.pem (my public ssh key) to my github account.
I can select the text using Vim (using pressing
v first and keyboard arrows, no mouse is present), but can't copy and paste it to an external program (ie Github).
The problem occurs when I want to copy my public ssh key to Github.
I have installed
vim-gtk as it has clipboard support. When I type
$ vim --version | grep clipboard +clipboard +xterm_clipboard
I understand clipboard support is required.
It is said I should use
"+y to copy text, but this has not worked.
What do I have to do to be able copy text from the terminal to external programs?
I've tried Accessing the system clipboard using Vim
