和乡下小姪女性故事Ohhh I’m a dum-dum.

和乡下小姪女性故事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



ssh -X user@

Editing my ~/.ssh/config file to

ForwardX11 yes

right the heck now.
