While this forum is relatively quiet, I want to ask a minor question. I would like to exploit Midnight Commander for daily routine work, but can not copy nor paste any text in MC Editor.
Yes, the internal commands F3 to select - deselect, F5 to duplicate, F6 to move, and F8 to remove selected text work exactly as expected. Yet usual Shift-Delete to cut, C-Ins to store the selected text to a clipfile, and S-Ins to paste it — no, never, no way. F9 menu does not help, too.
What is the clipfile and where it resides? It is mentioned in mc manual as mcedit.clip. I did not find it, though. Is it the same system clipboard?
~/.config/mc/mcedit/ directory is empty, a general
ini configuration file in
~/.config/mc/ does not contain copy-paste options o something related. I did not find nothing similar in
/usr/local/etc/mc/, too. Just did not understand the following strings in [input] section of
# Mark = Remove = ctrl-w # Cut = Store = alt-w # Paste = Yank = ctrl-y
