This question already has an answer here:
I am using Vim on Arch Linux through urxvt. Since there is no "Ctrl-V" or "Ctrl-Shift-V" support in urxvt, there is no way for me to paste things I have copied from my browser (let's say) into my vim buffer.
set clipboard=unnamed in my .vimrc but this seems to have no effect. Pressing "p" only pastes from the vim clipboard and after copying or cutting from vim, nothing gets added to my system clipboard.
Just in urxvt, I can paste by using middle click on the mouse, which uses the system clipboard, but once I enter vim, even this functionality is replaced by vim's internal clipboard.
Is there any way to enable copy-paste functionality in my vim setup?
