Description JLapham 2001-11-01 13:08:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011012

Description of problem:
Pasting text from "nedit" (a GPL'ed graphical text editor, see
http://wwww.nedit.org/) to gnome-terminal using the "X" method (hightlight
the text, use the middle mouse button to paste) doesn't work.  However,
copying from gnome-terminal to nedit does work.
X Copy/paste to and from gnome-terminal to any non-nedit X app works fine.

X Copy/paste to and from nedit to any non-gnome-terminal X app works fine
(including nxterm and xterm).  Why do I believe the problem is with
gnome-terminal and not with nedit?  Because with RH71 (and all older
versions) it was possible to X-paste into gnome-terminal from nedit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open nedit, type some text
2.highlight the text using the left mouse button
3.paste into an open gnome-terminal window using the middle mouse button

Actual Results:  nothing appears in the gnome-terminal window

Expected Results:  the highlighted text should appear

Additional info:

I've tried both v5.1.1 and v5.2 of nedit.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-11-01 15:20:20 UTC
nedit doesn't support the i18n text that gnome-terminal is requesting.
gnome-terminal needs the legacy STRING paste type added back for compat.
