i use uxrvt ( for those who dont know, its terminal emulator based on xterm).

i know its easy to copy/paste stuff from terminal to itself is a trivial thing. it can be done by mouse left click to select and middle click to paste.

but in my case i need to copy text from terminal to another application, viz on google chromium. how can i do that. is it even possible? anyone?


Same way. Focus and then middle-click the control you want to paste into.

    Remember that X11 has multiple "clipboards": selecting/Middle-click accesses the Primary selection, and using Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V accesses the Clipboard selection. (Shift-Insert usually pastes from Primary.) – grawity Jan 13 '11 at 19:34
