I'm using Ubuntu and vim. I can copy text from vim and paste it into another window by highlighting it in vim, then middle-clicking in the other window. This works fine when I'm on my local machine.
I can also copy into the system register by highlighting text and yanking to the system register. (For example,
Shift-V JJ "+ y to go into linewise visual mode, highlight two lines, select the '+' register and yank.) It's then available to paste into other windows.
However, if I ssh into my web host, I can't do either of these. (They use some flavor of Linux - I think it's CentOS.)
In vim, if I type
:version, my local version shows
+xterm_clipboard, but the host's version shows
-xterm_clipboard. I don't have sudo rights there.
Is there any way to be able to copy from their vim without getting them to tinker with the installation?
