I dearly adore Geany as I can use it over an SSH X11 connection.
Butttttttttt, it does not support the Primary Clipboard (mouse
over and center click). It only supports the Secondary
Clipboard (<ctrl>c< <ctrl><c>) -- a Windows thing.
This is a real pain in the neck (not my exact word). It
is annoying as *** ALL *** my other Linux programs support it
and it is a muscle memory.
Is there any work around or plans to fully support the
clipboards in Linux, not just the reduced function
clipboards that Windows supports?
Middle click pasting the primary selection works for me, within and
into and out of Geany and AFAIK has always worked, maybe your SSH does
something unusual. More information needed.
I was trying to mouse over and paste from a
local copy to a terminal.
And the Secondary Clipboard is working to and from Geany
from and to Thunderbird.
And now it is working to and from a terminal as well.
Me things something was amiss in either that instance
of Geany or Terminal. And restarting both fixed
So, never mind ... mumble, mumble
p.s. When I am ssh-X11ing into a remote Geany, I will
make a local backup copy of my file by opening Geany
locally, doing a <ctrl><a> and <ctrl><c> on the remote
Geany, then doing a <ctrl><V> on my local Geany. Works
beautifully. (Secondary clipboard).
