Can't copy out from sys-net terminal

I can’t copy the contents from the sys-net terminal or other minimal qubes’ terminal. I use ctrl-insert and then ctrl-shift however 0 bytes are copied. I can paste the content in the terminal with shift-insert however it seems the qubes global clipboard is not detecting the insert clipboard. Is there a fix for this? It makes it impossible to copy from terminals.


Are you using xterm or gnome-terminal? Or another terminal-emulator?

I’m using xterm as my default terminal here

I don’t think this is Qubes specific, but rather Xterm specific.

Try to add

XTerm*selectToClipboard: true

to the ~/.Xresources

Now run

xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

and restart xterm.
