Ohhh I’m a dum-dum.
I was struggling for a full 30 mins to an hour trying to be able to get copy and paste working over tmux. I already had some settings for it in tmux.conf and was wondering why nothing I tried was working.
What I wanted to be able to do:
Remote in tmux: mouse click – drag – select – text in a pane in tmux (over ssh).
Local: Paste into a notepad
TURNS OUT MY SSH SESSION, I WAS NOT FORWARDING X, SO OF COURSE XSEL AND XCLIP DON’T WORK.
ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org
Editing my ~/.ssh/config file to
right the heck now.
