• Syncterm copy/paste

    From device@VERT to All on Monday, July 19, 2021 18:45:00
    Hello All,

    I'm hoping to get some help on an issue I'm having with SyncTerm 1.2b client on Linux.

    I've tried multiple keys but I'm unable to perform a copy/paste from the Syncterm console to anywhere. I'm unable to select text using the mouse. I just want to be able to copy text, like an URL, from an established BBS connection.

    So, what's the trick? :D

    My apologies if this is not the correct place to ask this.

    Best regards,
    device

    The mouse must be used to select text, which copies it to the clipboard. You must be in a graphics mode (e.g. not curses mode) to use the mouse.

    It runs X11 mode by default, other modes were also unsucessful.
