Description Matt 2001-03-20 17:51:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14smp i686)

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.

Reproducible: Always
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?

Comment 2 Matt 2001-03-20 19:16:30 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Matt 2001-03-20 20:33:32 UTC
On upgrading to gnome-libs-1.2.8-10 from rawhide the problem is resolved.
