+title: Disabling Mouse Support in Debian's Vim
+published: 2020-08-13
+---
+
+One of the more infurating things about Debian is that they enable mouse
+support in Vim by default. How do I `:q!` mouse support in Vim?
+
+Turns out to be very easy, but of course there is no documentation on how to
+do this properly and searching the web results in only wrong answers. What
+else is new?
+
+Put this in `${HOME}/.vimrc` and you can again copy/paste text in a sane way
+using your mouse.
+
+ set mouse=
+
+That's all!
