[SOLVED] "click" Enter without keyboard in xfce4-terminal ?

Hello I'm wondering if it's possible to do Enter without the keyboard in the terminal ?

Before it was possible to just copy a command and move the mouse to execute the command without pressing Enter on the keyboard but after a certain update it was not anymore.

Thanks

readline enabled bracketed paste by default some time back that stripped the CR from pasted content - forcing you to press the enter key. You can disable it via:

bind "set enable-bracketed-paste off"

You can use xbindkeys to bind the return key to a mouse button - but this would be system-wide. With xfce4-terminal you can also bind an event to the right mouse button (Preferences > Advanced > "Right click action"), but sending a line/carriage return is not an option.

I think that in case of emergency you can always use the virtual keyboard even though it is much more clicks (and more surface of screen occupied)...

@ ToZ :

The (Preferences > Advanced > "Right click action") has no personalized action choice. I have also tried to launch the bind "set enable-bracketed-paste off" command trough Preferences > general > personalized command without success. It means the command has to be sent manually every time in every terminal. The only remaining choice is xbindkeys.

Anyway, thank you.
