I read and tried several different solutions but I am still unable to copy from vim to system clipboard. Viceversa works, copying from outside vim and pasting with p is ok.
I have installed clipboard support, vim version is 7.3.429:
$ vim --version | grep clip +clientserver +clipboard +cmdline_compl +cmdline_hist +cmdline_info +comments +xsmp_interact +xterm_clipboard -xterm_save
.vimrc and clipboard is set when I do:
:echo has('unnamedplus') returns 1
To copy from gvim to clipboard I am using:
yy y "*y "+y
To paste I use
Ctrl+Shift+V (in a terminal), but it doesn't work.
vimrc is here (sorry for pastebin, it is too long to stay in this post)
Edit: copying to different instance of vim works, via the p shortcut. Otherwise it does not work.
I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and GVim. Any idea?
