Hi Anne,

Sounds like you have to use the -X option for SSH when you log into the
other system. Otherwise, the remote pass process can't access your
clipboard. Whether or not that's a good thing depends on your situation,
but in this case it doesn't do what you want it to ;)

What do you mean with "I wanted a command line password manager"? I
mean, you are using it on the CLI already.

Kind regards,
