The new version of VIM has just been added, and I don't like it. By default
it uses it's own copy/paste mechanism and doesn't seem to support the system
clipboard. What I want is to have VIM not really know about the system
clipboard and just use a middle-button click to paste with my Xterm (Konsole
in this case) and have VIM just take the text. Is it possible to do this with
the new version of VIM?
Russel, I've not yet updated to the latest Vim, but am confident that it
will maintain compatibility with the system clipboard. The defaults
which were changed were all said to be for increased user convenience,
so if they cause the described problem, those responsible might be
quickly reverted, to avoid any need to tweak .vimrc.
A question on the vim-users ML always elicits a quick and informed
response, I find.
(Who also relies on middle-button paste to Vim, rather than "+p or "*p .)
