vim on Debian 9 issue with cut and paste

July 25, 2017

While using vi (vim) on Debian 9 via cli, there is an issue with cut and paste with a mouse.
This can be corrected by adding a .vimrc file to your user folder as shown below
##CONTENTS OF .vimrc
.vimrc
set mouse=””

This will re-enable the mouse cut and paste feature from a terminal.
