highlight text and click the mouse wheel
middle button or both buttons simultaneously
where you want text to appear.

May take a few attempts to get the hang of it . . .

To paste into a text editor, after you block-select (highlight) your text, go to your text editor and press your middle mouse-button or wheel at the location where you want it.

For your wireless issues, may i suggest you post a new thread for that, because this thread is about console operations.

Cheers,
russoodle Smile

oops, Lobster beat me to it Sad

it's still not working, Lobster.
I try to click the mouse wheel simultaneously and also try to click right n left button but it's still not appear. I look up into the "edit" menu but the "paste" is still not activated/highlighted.
any info again?

@russoodle: hello.
hmm.. I try to abiword for now, and the Paste is Highlighted for now.but, after I try to click it. nothing is viewed. I don't know the reason why is it hard for me for only copying the console texts to Wine Notepad or Abiword. T_T

bakekoq, if you have a wheel-mouse, it should work just by clicking it to paste the text....the simultaneous left-right buttons are only an alternative option for those without a wheel or third button.

thanks a lot for the help guys. I try it in wine notepad but it's not worked. but, after I try in Abiword it worked perfectly. So, I'll try to use abiword for the future to save the text from consoles.
@russoodle: I'll try to post my wireless problem after this post. Please help me for checking the log of dmesg or anothers.

Well bakekoq, why not use Geany for pasting text, as it's a text editor? Unless you're more comfortable with AbiWord, which is actually a word-processor.....just my preference, mind you..

Regarding output (log) of dmesg, enter the following code into the console:

Code:
dmesg > /root/dmesg.txt


That will give you the output from dmesg and save it to a text file in /root.

ok, I'll try to use Geany in the future. I'm still not familiar with linux and the programs here. so, I still don't know what's good or better for using. yes, I already post the log in the new thread. please help me for the future.

Thanks before.

PostPosted: Mon 07 Jan 2013, 23:19    Post subject: Question about shell: Dead keys don't work in shell
Subject description: Dead keys put accents over letters: ñ ã õ ê è é
 

I am experiencing a problem with shell. Many languages, like French, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Esperanto and Vietnamese, to name a few ones, add diacritical marks to letters. One can say that 4/5 of the world population speak languages with diacritical marks. The Chinese, for example, use a system, called Hànyǔ pīnyīn, with diacritical marks to write their language, and teach children the pronunciation of traditional Chinese characters.

To add diacritical marks to letters, keyboards have the so called dead keys. If you want to write café, or coup d'état, bon appétit, à la vôtre santé, déjà vu, you need dead keys. The problem is that dead keys don't seem to work on console of Puppy Linux. They work everywhere, except in the console.

If I try to use the mouse and keyboard wizard, I discover that Puppy Linux offer me only one option: No dead keys. I would appreciate if a member of this community could tell me how to activate dead keys for the console.

I tried to edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf, without success. By the way, dead keys don't work only in the console. They work very well for everything else. They also work inside Emacs. So, I am forced to use the consoles of Emacs (shell, eshell, ansi-term bash, etc.

It is interesting that dead keys work for Lucid Puppy, but not for the other distributions of Puppy Linux.

Unfortunately, this thread is not the appropriate one for your question. I suggest that you try posting as a new thread.

Re your question, I can't help you, but I do know there are a number of terminal emulators. For example, in Dpup Exprimo the menu offers LXTerminal and urvxt-unicode terminal emulators. Maybe try these and see if one does what you desire. But I think someone would know, if you post where they will see it.

Good luck! Smile
