I'm running vim on a Debian Jessie machine inside of a VirtualBox on my Mac. I'm trying to get
p to work so I can copy and paste across different terminal windows by using the system clipboard. Please note the following:
echo has('clipboard') returns 1 (I have vim-gtk installed)
2) My .vimrc file is as follows:
syntax on set mouse=a set clipboard=unnamedplus
3) I've logged into the ssh session with
ssh -XY me@host>to allow x11 forwarding
4) The Debian machine is headless.

When I do
yy or even
"+yy and then do
:reg to look inside the registers, there is no listing for the
Not sure what else to try.
