Can't paste from konsole into forwarded X application
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:08 EDT
I am running dtmail on Solaris 7. It is forwarded back to my Linux box
When I attempt select some text in the konsole and attempt it to paste it
by pressing the middle button, it is ignored. When I select some text in
Netscape and attempt to paste it by pressing the middle button, it works
fine. I can also paste from a konsole into a (local) kmail fine as well.
This seems to be a problem on the Solaris side - pasitng to other (even remote)
Linux applications works perfectly.
My guess is Solaris catches the mouse event.
If it was a problem on the Sun side, I would not be able to paste from (local
Linux) Netscape into dtmail. Just for kicks, I just tried pasting from Mozilla
(Linux build 2000120808). That works. Plain xterm works as well. It appears
that none of the KDE applications work. konsole, kvt, and kmail failed to
paste. If I can get GNOME set up on my machine, I will do some tests with it
and let you know what happens. Reopening...
Just switched to GNOME. Pasting from gnome-terminal works fine as well.
Bero, does this work with KDE 3 and the new Qt selection mechanisms?
I have no idea, since I don't have access to any sun systems. Linux<->Linux and
Linux<->FreeBSD (the only 2 OSes I have access to) has always
This WORKSFORME on KDE 3.0.
