Description Mark Leary 2004-01-27 20:57:09 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
When running emacs as an x client on X-Win32, I can't copy from the 
emacs buffer and paste into any other window (or the emacs buffer 
itself for that matter).  I have not tested with XFree86, however 
this works fine with the version of emacs distributed with RH8.  Also 
xemacs on RHEL3 does not have this problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Run emacs as an xclient.
2.  Copy text.
3.  Paste text.

Actual Results:  Clipboard is empty (or not overwritten)

Expected Results:  The copied text should be pasted.

I take that back, xemacs doesn't work either... gedit however does.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-01-28 03:27:07 UTC
Does it would in a xterm say?

Anyway X-Win32 is not a platform we support, so
I suggest you take this up with the vendor.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-01-28 03:28:24 UTC
Sorry I meant "Does it work in a xterm or other X apps?"

Comment 4 Mark Leary 2004-01-28 04:23:57 UTC
No it doesn't...

I just tested this with XFree86 and the problem remains...  I can't 
copy from emacs and paste to xterm, gedit or even another xterm 

Please reopen the case as XFree86 is a supported platform.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2004-01-28 07:43:39 UTC
Can you copy'n'paste from xterm to xterm say?

Comment 6 Mark Leary 2004-01-28 14:15:40 UTC
Yes, I can.

Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2005-05-18 03:24:33 UTC
I just tried now with Fedora Core 2 and 4test3 and it seems to work fine
for me here.

Closing for now, please re-open if you're still seeing the problem.
