Getting system clipboard access in vim in tmux in ssh
If you'd like to use `"*y` and `"*p` in neovim you have to make sure it works across the stack.
These steps are necessary:
* Have xsel installed
* enable `X11Forward` in your remote sshd.conf
* disable `X11Localhost` in the same file
Then restart your ssh connction with the -Y flag and make sure to restart tmux otherwise you might get errors because $DISPLAY might not yet be set.
