I use windows, and copy and paste is as simple as highlighting what I want and hitting 'ctrl c' for copy, and 'ctrl v' for paste. I suppose I could set the middle mouse button to do it, but its already easy enough.
I am a bigger fan of tons of control rather than taking the "user-friendly" approach.

It's a pain to copy paste it in and out every time you want to run it.
Especially as console based editor's don't always play nice with your x clipboard.

We have two clipboards on linux…

You can simply make a klipper action that will do something like echo '%s' > ~/.text.txt; kate ~/.text.txt in order to get rid of the need to start kate manually.

We would be lucky if we had two clips... we got at least three.

Quoting xclip man page:

Code: Select all

-selection
  specify  which  X selection to use, options are "primary" to use
  XA_PRIMARY (default), "secondary"  for  XA_SECONDARY  or  "clip‐
  board" for XA_CLIPBOARD

ah this explains a lot. Indeed it would be easier to have just two: one for selection and one for clipboard. Sadly I don't see way to change it in the future.

But enough of this offtopic.
