Neither worked for me Nils. Firstly, in the address bar of Konqueror it
says, http://linuxcommand.org/lts0040.php. The page that I want to
highlight is probably 2 pages in length. What I would like to do is
copy those contents into an otd or doc, reduce the size of the print to
perhaps 8 point, and put it on my Desktop. I will use it as a reference
while I am learning to use the shell and memorize same. Your first
suggestion got the same result, as when I tried to copy and more or less
paste, in that it pasted the url address, not the content of the page
that I highlighted. If I did what I normally would do to cut and paste,
highlight text then right-click on the text, at this point rather than
make ready the transfer of the data, it backs up to the previous
screen. The second suggestion did nothing that I can see.
I am in the manual pages of Konqueror, I think. However, I think the
manual I am looking at is located somewhere else and is not actually in
my computer. So I am trying to transfer information over the internet
instead of from within my computer. I don't know why that would make a
difference. If it does, please explain? Cordially,
