Description kolA flash 2013-12-01 18:15:55 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0

Until openSUSE 12.3 I used to copy stuff from vim to XServer applications. I.e. copy links from a textfile into Firefox.

1. Press v and mark some text.
2. Press "+y (one after another: " then + then y) to copy to XServer clipboard.

On openSUSE 13.1 this isn't working anymore. Looks like the +xterm_clipboard was disabled when compiling vim.

# vim --version | grep xterm_clipboard
+eval            +mouse_dec       +startuptime     -xterm_clipboard

A - tells that the option is disabled.

Please re-enable!

Reproducible: Always

This should be fixed in openSUSE 13.1, can you please check?
Comment 2 kolA flash 2014-01-14 18:52:21 UTC
The other way around:

The problem appeared with openSUSE 13.1

In openSUSE 12.3 everything was fine.
Comment 3 Robin Roth 2014-01-30 10:29:29 UTC
As mentioned by Moritz Duge, the vim build in openSuSE 13.1 is missing the compilation option "xterm_clipboard". This breaks workflows that worked in 12.3.
Please readd a vim version with "xterm_clipboard"

Created attachment 576510 [details]
patch changing compilation flags to reenable xterm_clipboard

This patch of the vim.spec file removes the "--without-x" flag and thus enables xterm_clipboard again, restoring features present in previous openSuSE versions.

Tried with


and works well. Except I had to replace

BuildRequires:  krb5-mini


BuildRequires:  krb5

in the "vim.spec" file because of this:

$ LANG=C sudo zypper in krb5-mini

When can one expect official release of the package?
Comment 7 Ismail Dönmez 2014-03-24 12:44:08 UTC
I am looking into this, sorry for the delay.
