After switching to 24.5.11 from some ancient version, Emacs started to spam my primary selection: Whenever I mark a region, or even move the point using e.g. arrow keys when the mark is active, a new entry appears in my Parcellite history. This makes it unusable.
- I want Emacs changing the primary selection when I mark some text using the mouse.
- I don't care about what happens when using keyboard (pressing
- But there must be only a single such entry in the history.
Maybe it's not Emacs' thing at all and it's Parcellite capturing every selection? No idea, but it used to work on Ubuntu 10.04 (now I'm on 16.04).
