I've finally found myself at home in Linux, but there is still one thing that has bothered me since the start, and I have not found a realistic solution:
How do I disable the automatic copying of highlighted text in Linux's desktop environment
My Desktop Environment is XFCE, Window Manager is Openbox and it's all held together by Archlinux, I do however have these issues in other distributions.
Every time I go to replace a section of text I:
Highlight the source then press the usual Ctrl-C
I then select the text I want to replace and since highlighting text automatically copies it to the clipboard, manually reselect from clipman the selection I just copied, and paste it that way. This is very inefficient.
I have resorted, out of desperation to using Windows for heavy editing of Source / Documents.
I would prefer to have copy paste routine identical to that which Windows uses
The problem was my fault all along!
I had ignorantly pasted
autocutsel -selection PRIMARY -fork & into my
.xprofile, causing autocutsel to sync all my selections into the PRIMARY clipboard.
