Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2215
Cut/paste does not work betwee xterm and netscape mail editor
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
I was in process of editin netscape email message and I was
trying to cut and paste in techt opend vit vi in xterminal
I was able to cut/paste text within xterm or between xterms
but not into netscape message editing window.
I am using beta4.1 (5.9.9) on i386
rpm -q netscape-communicator
rpm -q netscape-common
Looks like a bug to me.
this looks like a netscape bug because I can paste from the current
xterms into Netscape 4.08 just fine...
I can cut and paste from vi under gnome-terminal & xterm into
the netscape compose message window fine here.

to problem is not with netscape's cut/paste buffer, it's that you don't know how
to use copy & paste with linux
see bug 7940 for a bit of explanation about copy & paste
