I come from the old school of Unix / X11 usage. Select with left
click to copy. Extend selection with right click to copy more. Paste
with middle click. Using keyboard or menu items to explicitly copy
something is a foreign import.
Increasingly I find that I am on systems that have two incompatible
cut and paste buffers. I run into it most often (but not exclusively)
cuting and pasting between Firefox and xterms. Sometimes a middle
click will paste nothing in Firefox. Sometimes something copied[*]
from Firefox won't paste in an xterm.
[*] Copied via a menu, such as "Copy link location" from the context
Is there a good way to keep these two buffers in sync?
thinks <shift>-<insert> is a perfectly normal way to paste, though
