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):
Steps to Reproduce:
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
