Enable vim cut paste Debian 9

 

Enable vim cut paste Debian 9 with preferable global solution for all users, which loads the default options and then adds or overwrites the defaults with the personal settings.

Luckily there is an option for that in Debian: The /etc/vim/vimrc.local will be loaded after the /etc/vim/vimrc. So you can create this file and load defaults, preventing them from being loaded again (at the end) and then add your personal options:

Please create the following file: /etc/vim/vimrc.local

" This file loads the default vim options at the beginning and prevents
" that they are being loaded again later. All other options that will be set,
" are added, or overwrite the default settings. Add as many options as you
" whish at the end of this file.

" Load the defaults
source $VIMRUNTIME/defaults.vim

" Prevent the defaults from being loaded again later, if the user doesn't
" have a local vimrc (~/.vimrc)
let skip_defaults_vim = 1
" Set more options (overwrites settings from /usr/share/vim/vim80/defaults.vim)
" Add as many options as you whish

" Set the mouse mode to 'r'
if has('mouse')
set mouse=r
endif

(Note that $VIMRUNTIME used in the above snippet has a value like /usr/share/vim/vim80/defaults.vim.)

If you also want to enable the “old copy/paste behavior”, add the following lines at the end of that file as well:

" Toggle paste/nopaste automatically when copy/paste with right click in insert mode:
let &t_SI .= "\<Esc>[?2004h"
let &t_EI .= "\<Esc>[?2004l"

inoremap <special> <expr> <Esc>[200~ XTermPasteBegin()

function! XTermPasteBegin()
set pastetoggle=<Esc>[201~
set paste
return ""
endfunction
