Check your /etc/vimrc or ~/.vimrc and make sure
autoindent is turned off.
e.g. look for:
" automatically indent lines (default)
" set noautoindent
You can uncomment the "set
noautoindent" for vi globally (I do that in my
~/.vimrc). You can also just use the command ': set noai' in vim to turn it off.
I have seen konsole do this with vim active for
--- well forever. It drives
me nuts, so I turn autoindent off and if I need it, just type ': set ai' to
turn it on when editing code.
That is likely the issue if vim is involved, if
not -- I have no other guesses.
I finally found installations with a .vimrc to remove (host big41, Mageia 7/TDE
14.0.9 & 8/TDE 14.0.11). Its removal didn't help, and there is no /etc/vim* in
To be clear, the editor I always use in mc is mcedit, the internal mc editor. I
can't imagine what vim settings would have to do with it.
Then it is something, perhaps where the text you are pasting is coming from.
From kwrite to mcedit in konsole on 15.0, no problems:
Only other thought I would have would be if your indentations were actual
'tab' characters instead of spaces. (note that is a thought, guess, etc...)
Pasting from code with spaces for indention seems to work fine.
(while we are on konsole, we need to update the xterm backend as the new xterm
provides a multi-line write that some package managers are using that is not
ANSI escape based that opensuse KDE3 hasn't been patched for -- and I suspect
TDE is in the same boat) pacman (Arch package manager) is doing this now and
konsole just kind of provides jittery output on a single line, rather than
current and total on separate lines.)
