URxvt, or if you wish to call it rxvt-unicode, has this weird thing turned on by default where it binds ctrl+shift keys to all sorts of insanity (keycap picture insert mode and stuff like that).
Dammit, I want my “normal” terminal behavior back! By “normal” I think that if I press:
- Ctrl + Shift + V -> paste contents of my main clipboard (from X)
- Ctrl + Shift + C -> copy current selection to clipboard
So to restore that functionality here’s the magic thing you need in your .Xresources file in order to achieve it:
! Restore Ctrl+Shift+(c|v) URxvt.keysym.Shift-Control-V: eval:paste_clipboard URxvt.keysym.Shift-Control-C: eval:selection_to_clipboard URxvt.iso14755: false URxvt.iso14755_52: false
Once you have that just merge settings with:
xrdb -merge .Xresources
