^V -> paste?

Post by Ken » Sun, 15 Apr 2001 03:58:15



I am having a problem that the latest Logitech MouseWare for Windows
2000 (and the only that works correctly under it) will not paste
correctly in UNIX shells anymore with the middle button, like via
SecureCRT.  They changed it to ^V, where I think it probably used to
be shift+insert.  Anyone else here run into this from Windows?  I
wonder if there is some way to make UNIX (tcsh) accept ^V as paste
through my ssh sessions.

Thanks.

Probably not.  ^V is normally "lnext" (settable by the stty command),
which causes the next character to be entered literally; for example,
^V^C enters a ^C character rather than causing a SIGINT signal.  Apart
from the fact that you probably don't want to re-map it, there's no
way for the remote Unix system to get at the Windows clipboard data.
Also, tcsh is not Unix; whatever changes you made in the shell
wouldn't affect other programs.  (stty changes the tty settings, which
are not shell-specific.)

Your best bet is to figure out how to make Logitech MouseWare do the
right thing, either by reading the documentation or asking Logitech.
(In that case, this is not the right newsgroup.)

Thanks, Keith.  I didn't want to have to resort to newsgroups, but it
was pointless asking Logitech.  Emails went nowhere and a phone call
ended up telling me that they know about it but probably won't fix it.
