Description Orion Poplawski 2008-04-10 17:10:57 UTC
Description of problem: Trying to paste the contents of the X clipboard into a Thunderbird compose window but nothing happens. Can copy/paste from elsewhere in the compose window, but not from any other application. Running KDE. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): thunderbird-188.8.131.52-4.fc9.i386
Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2008-04-10 20:43:50 UTC
Cannot reproduce with the same package of thunderbird on Gnome.
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2008-04-10 20:44:50 UTC
Trying to blame KDE. What do you, guys, think about it?
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-10 20:58:26 UTC
What other applications did you try? Is Klipper running? If so, how is it configured? With the default settings? Or have you changed anything?
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-10 21:17:30 UTC
Works konsole and firefox. Klipper is running - should be stock configuration - I've tried not to do any configuration.
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-10 21:25:15 UTC
Sorry, I actually meant: from what applications were you trying unsuccessfully to paste into Thunderbird?
Comment 6 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-10 21:38:40 UTC
I can paste from Firefox and OO Writer. I can't paste from konsole and konqueror.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2008-04-10 21:45:11 UTC
If I recall, I do that exact operation (copy from konsole/konq, paste into thunderbird) almost every day. I'll go (re)check, to make sure I'm not just going senile.
Comment 8 Lukáš Tinkl 2008-04-11 08:01:29 UTC
Could be that klipper is causing that behavior, try to disable it
Comment 9 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-11 16:54:12 UTC
Quit klipper and disabled running in on login. Logged out and back it. Still can't paste.
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2008-04-11 17:19:02 UTC
Copy konsole/konq contents, paste into Thunderbird, worksforme, *with* klipper. wierd.
Comment 11 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-11 19:24:11 UTC
I can't reproduce it on a different laptop, so it may be hardware dependent.
Comment 12 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-11 19:26:17 UTC
Okay, found the difference/issue. It doesn't work with HTML compose. If you are in text compose or if you do "Paste without formatting" it works. So, who's fault is it - KDE or Thunderbird? How do we know more about the "format" of the selection?
Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2008-04-11 21:44:54 UTC
back to TB and see.
Comment 14 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 09:15:35 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 15 Steven M. Parrish 2009-01-10 19:10:34 UTC
Is this still an ongoing issue or has it been resolved?
Comment 16 Orion Poplawski 2009-01-12 22:10:22 UTC
This appears to be fixed in F10 with TB 184.108.40.206.
