I'm a gorilla.
I put Ubuntu in my recently bought ThinkPad so that I can use my long-sought Linux machine. I had a hard time getting Vim's clipboard registers available, so I'll leave them as a note. I hope it helps those who are having trouble with the same thing.
When building Vim on Ubuntu, you need to install
libxmu-dev and then the
#Required library sudo apt install libxmu-dev #Build ./configure --with-x --enable-multibyte --enable-fail-if-missing && make && sudo make install #After building properly`+clipboard`Confirm that it is $ vim --version | grep clip +clipboard +keymap +postscript +vartabs +eval -mouse_jsbterm -sun_workshop +xterm_clipboard
