I am using Spacemacs in a terminal in a desktop, ie Konsole and when I try to copy and paste I see that emacs is capturing mouse clicks.

Is it possible to disable Emacs mouse capture for copying and pasting with the mouse to work. Even if it can be toggled on and off that will be fine.

The snippet below should be added to the dotspacemacs/user-config section in .spacemacs:

(xterm-mouse-mode -1)

From documentation at http://spacemacs.org/doc/FAQ.html#make-copypaste-working-with-the-mouse-in-x11-terminals (section 2.16)
