Problem with Copy/Paste - copying text from the terminal does not work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Text can not be copied from gnome-terminal.
Tried the usual mouse-selection and also Copy from the menu, it seems that the
selection is simply ignored.
Text can be pasted into the terminal from other applications (i.e. from Firefox,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Simply select some text in gnome-terminal using your mouse, then hit the
middle-mouse button to paste it.
If anything from another application was selected before, it will get pasted
into the terminal.
The last selection, the one we just made in the terminal should get pasted.
This is a fresh FC7 installation, I did not do anything extraordinary, I started
a couple of gnome terminals and immediately noticed the problem.
Copy/Paste between other applications works as always, pasting into the terminal
works too, copying text from it does not.
After restarting X it magically started to work again...
Same thing happens here.
It seems its a wide spread problem but happens occasionally and when X is
restarted the problem goes away.
