Description Jamie Zawinski 2005-04-24 01:10:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
It's not possible to copy text from the xmtr window to, e.g., paste into email to your network admin asking "why's my network slow?"

I end up having to run mtr in a terminal instead (and wait around a second time for it to build up enough packets for the numbers to be meaningful) in order to be able to copy/paste it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mtr-gtk-0.54-10

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run xmtr
2.select a line
3.try to paste elsewhere


Actual Results:  4.no PRIMARY or CLIPBOARD selections
5.cry like a schoolgirl


Expected Results:  The xmtr display uses a list widget of some kind; multi-select should be enabled in it, and when those lines are selected, the text in them should be owned as the PRIMARY selection.

Or, alternately, you could just add a "copy as text" button somewhere and stuff it all in CLIPBOARD.

This is actually more like a feature request and a quite big change. Please
consider to email your proposal to the official maintainers of MTR here:

Read ya, Phil
