Unsure how to connect to toilet shutoff valve

I'm trying to connect a bidet to the toilet shutoff valve, but I'm not sure the best way to do it.

Normally, the supply line can be disconnected from the shut-off valve part, but I don't know of a good way to accomplish this. I unscrewed the shutoff valve, and this still leaves the supply line connected.

The toilet water supply line and shut-off valve that looks like this: here.
  • The shut-off valve looks like this: here
  • The supply line to tank interface looks like here

These 3 pics show the bidet:
Is the stop valve non-standard? Any suggestions for how to install the spray attachment?

you need to replace the shutoff valve and get a new supply line. Use an olive puller, to remove the copper compression ring (olive). No olive puller? I've always carefully used a hacksaw to cut a notch across the olive (running from front to back). Don't cut all the way through the olive, to prevent nicking your copper line. You will likely need to make the notch at an angle. Once the olive is notched about halfway through, use a standard (not phillips) screwdriver in that groove. Twist the screwdriver in that notch, and the olive ring should snap in two and you can then remove it easily.
