Ex: Previously when I double click on terminal then a particular word used to be copied and then on right click I can paste it wherever I want.

Can anybody please help me in enabling this feature?

I dont know your environment just making a guess, try to follow the following (assuming x terminal)

File .Xresources

XTerm*VT100.cutNewLine: false
XTerm*VT100.cutToBeginningOfLine: false
XTerm*VT100.charClass: 33:48,35:48,37:48,42:48,45-47:48,64:48,95:48,126:48

File .xinitrc

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
    /usr/X11/bin/xrdb -merge $userresources

Thanks Sir,

But when you say File .Xresources and File .xinitrc, What exactly it means?
I don't where this file will be present.

I must copy a dir with some file with 'i' attribute set, but rsync (or cp) do not copy this attribute.

See this little example:

 # touch testfile
 # chattr +i testfile
 # rsync -aAX testfile testfile2
 # lsattr testfile*
 ----i---------- testfile
 --------------- testfile2

There is a way to copy all attribute?
