How can I copy to the x system clipboard from byobu?
I know how to copy and paste within byobu (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/en/man1/byobu.1.html) and I can easily paste from the system clipboard into byobu with the expected ctrl+shift+V
I would ideally like to be able to highlight with the mouse or in byobu scroll mode and then ctrl+shift+c and/or right-click-> copy If that is not going to be possible, integration of the internal byobu clipboard with the system clipboard would be grand. Or any other solutions folk might use / have in mind? Surely this is a common task? I frequently want to copy from the terminal and paste into the browser, for example.
The only two solutions I have seen are:
1) An outrageous hack involving many keystrokes: https://dodoincfedora.wordpress.com/2012/06/23/integrating-byobuscreens-copy-buffer-with-xgnome-clipboard/
2) Selecting and copying to the internal buffer followed by: echo [alt][insert] | xclip -selection c
How can I do this (surely very common?) task with less than a dozen keystrokes every time? :)
Try holding the Shift key:
