This problem is reproducible between several users and two installations of
Highlighting text in the editor Nedit 5.1.1 and using the middle mouse
button to paste into gnome-terminal does not work. However, it does work
between gnome-terminal and emacs, xterm and netscape, and nedit.
Also with nedit and the above applications.
Not sure if it's an nedit, gnome-terminal, or XFree86 bug. However, I have
tried gnome-core-1.2.4-11 and XFree86-4.0.2-12.1 from rawhide, and these
packages do not resolve the problem.
It works fine on Guiness.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Higlight text in nedit
2. Use middle mouse button in gnome-terminal
3. It doesn't work
Actual Results: Nothing
Expected Results: Highlighted text should appear in gnome-terminal
It works for me here, I can't reproduce it with latest gnome-core and nedit
packages. Anyone else able to reproduce?
In light of the last comment, I tried a running a gnome-terminal from a machine
running wolverine, locally on a machine running Guinness using ssh. Still can't
paste from any version of nedit running on any machine to this particular
I copied the binary from the Guiness machine to the wolverine machine. Still
the same problem.
PS : the message 'Selection retrieval failed' appears in the terminal where the
gnome-terminal is run from
Maybe try the Guinness libzvt (in gnome-libs) on Wolverine, and see if that
fixes it, that'll help narrow it down.
On upgrading to gnome-libs-1.2.8-10 from rawhide the problem is resolved.
