Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53488
can't paste from exmh
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
I can't cut and paste from exmh. I can select text in exmh. This text will be available in xclipboard, but if I try and paste it into a gnome-term nothing happens (either using middle button or gnome-terminal's menu option).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select some text in exmh
2. Try to paste into gnome terminal
Text should be pasted
This is a vanilla roswell2 installation. I suspect it's a tk/tcl problem, but I don't use any other tk/tcl apps.
On futher investigation I found:
exmh -> gnome-terminal fails
exmh -> Other apps (xterm, opera, xedit, xclipboard) works
Other apps -> gnome terminal works
I think exmh is putting selections on the clipboard selection, while gnome terminal is expecting them on the primary.
This should no longer apply to 8.0 gnome-terminal.
