I am not sure if this is the correct forum but I will give it a go. I have oracle linux as a guest inside virtualbox and windows 7 as a host.
So this is what I am trying to do I copy some data in the host (windows) and then in the guest(linux) using vi of a file I want to paste that data from windows into the file it may be more then one line in some cases but it does not seem to work is there something I am missing. It's been a while since I used vi.
When using vi inside linux how do you do a copy and paste from the host to the guest?
