I have the following in my
.vimrc (I don't recall where I found the original):
" Cut, Copy, Paste vnoremap <S-Del> "+x vnoremap <C-Insert> "+y
If I use Shift+Cursor keys to select some text and then press Ctrl+Ins to copy that text to the X11 clipboard, it works fine in gVim, but not in Vim.
Further investigation (using
noremap <Leader>y "+y) suggests that there's nothing wrong with the clipboard support, but rather something wrong with the keybinding.
I confirmed this by:
noremap <Leader>p :echo 'hello'<CR> noremap <C-Insert> :echo 'hello'<CR>
The former works; the latter does nothing.
