‘Paste Select’ in Konsole

Update (10/21/07):
ebuild and patch for konsole 3.5.8

I always felt a ‘paste selection’ menu item in konsole would be a great feature to have. I coded a two liner for konsole and submitted it to the KDE
Bug Tracking System
.

Unfortunately, the maintainer didn’t feel that anyone nowadays could actually not have a middle mouse button (which performs the paste selection). Of course, my core 2 laptop doesn’t have a middle mouse button.

Anyways, I wrote a small patch that you can apply against the konsole source to add the feature. I’ve also made a minor ebuild for Gentoo users that will apply the patch, compile and install the application.

For help on installing 3rd Party Ebuilds, you can look here: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Installing_3rd_Party_Ebuilds
