Description David Woodhouse 2001-10-01 09:44:29 UTC
Description of Problem:

When attempting to paste text selected in exmh into gnome-terminal, it 
reports 'Selection retrieval failed' to stdout and fails to work.

'LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/net/redhat71box/usr/lib gnome-terminal' works - so it
seems to be the core libraries rather than gnome-terminal which are at fault.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-10-03 22:08:21 UTC
Yeah, there is some interaction between the GTK/Zvt and Tk clipboard handling.

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2001-10-17 18:25:27 UTC
Investigated this, problem is that Tk offers only the STRING selection type, and
the multibyte patch to gnome-libs breaks STRING (asks only for COMPOUND_TEXT
with no STRING fallback).

Comment 4 JLapham 2001-11-01 16:03:27 UTC
I am the reporter for the duplicate bug report (bug #55500).  Would it be
possible to change the "Product" and "Version" settings on this bug from "Red
Hat Linux Beta  RC1" to "Red Hat Linux v7.2" since it still exists in the
released OS?

The reason this would be a good idea is that many (well, me at least) people
will search for bug reports using the "Red Hat Linux v7.2" filter and will not
see this report.

Comment 5 Roderick Johnstone 2001-12-18 15:56:32 UTC
We are seeing this also, in relation to nedit (duplicate #55500).

Any chance of a fix being available soon?? Thanks
