For the first time in many years I am using a Linux machine for my work. In general I am extremely pleased with the system I've set up. But of course, there are things that don't "just work".
Like... copy selected text from a tmux pane to the clipboard.
As usual, StackOverflow knows the answer. In short:
# .tmux.conf set-option -g mouse on set-option -s set-clipboard off bind-key -T copy-mode-vi MouseDragEnd1Pane send-keys -X copy-pipe-and-cancel "xclip -se c -i"
