Command line Xterm dosn't work correct

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am using newest Armbian Ubuntu on " Orange Pi plus 2 E" .

All three comand lines_Terminal emulator,Xterm and UXterm-works okay when I type something,for example: sudo apt-get...

But when I copy something,for example a command from the site,I paste it on Xterm,i see a with area. It dosn't paste.

Please could you help me to fix this?

Thanks,

How do you select and paste ?

 

xterm is a good old X11 app : the selection is done by highlighting text (no need to do copy), the paste is done by middle button press (the text must remained highlighted in source, because there is no intermediate buffer (app to app communication).

I tried in all of those situations;copy from a site and paste on Xterm. At my desktop -LXLE- goes everything ok,but here...this is the first time i see this.

I think maybe I did something wrong with installing or after install,bur can discover it where and how.

With x11 primary selection, you don't "copy". You select text somewhere, and then can get it to paste in another app. If you cannot paste highlighted text with middle mouse button, it should mean that another app steal the selection.

Simply  install another terminal. sudo  apt-get install gnome-terminal will give you a copy paste console. I do not know why this terminals are installed on armbian Desktops
