Right click paste on linux terminal with terminatorRédigé par gorki 4 commentaires
For once, an english post as I saw many other person interest in this problem.
I just migrate from Windows to Linux, as many others, lot of little things to do to have fully functional desktop... a next post to describe this.
One of the most annoying thing was the "middle click" in terminal... Not used to, I scroll when I want to paste...
No problem, I looked for a terminal with this option.. but no one found on google !!.
Solution (since Terminator 1.0)
Just check the box "PuTTY paste mode" in the preferences, thanks for authors !
Also to display the menu on Cinnamon : shift + right click + left click (or try any of ctrl/shift + right, left, middle click)
Solution (before Terminator 1.0)
I installed Terminator, following many advices, not bad at all, except this annoying menu on right click...
I saw a feature request but author will do it maybe, one day or if someone offers this feature in option with GUI configuration, etc...
Looking for Terminator plugins system, I noticed it was coded in Python, yeah !
Few minutes later, as root :
sudo apt-get install terminator sudo vi /usr/share/terminator/terminatorlib/terminal.py
Look for the following function :
def on_buttonpress(self, widget, event): """Handler for mouse events""" # Any button event should grab focus widget.grab_focus() if event.button == 1: # Ctrl+leftclick on a URL should open it if event.state & gtk.gdk.CONTROL_MASK == gtk.gdk.CONTROL_MASK: url = self.check_for_url(event) if url: self.open_url(url, prepare=True) elif event.button == 2: # middleclick should paste the clipboard self.paste_clipboard(True) return(True) elif event.button == 3: # rightclick should display a context menu if Ctrl is not pressed if event.state & gtk.gdk.CONTROL_MASK == 0: self.popup_menu(widget, event) return(True) return(False)
I invert button test, and that's all : menu on middle click, paste on right click.
Here is the difference :
def on_buttonpress(self, widget, event): ... if event.button == 1: ... elif event.button == 3: ... elif event.button == 2: ... return(False)
With Clipman on XFCE to synchronize selection clipboard and X clipboard, it suits my needs for now.
