Hello, I'm trying to create a bindsym for pasting primary selection, which I using in xterm, as I would like to paste selection from terminal in other applications without using the mouse.

When I try the following:

bindsym $mod+Shift+V exec sh -c 'xdotool type "xsel"'

i3 crashes and I'm being forced to my login manager.

Any good advice, fixes, solutions?
