Description David Jaša 2012-03-20 11:56:55 EDT
Description of problem:
When connected to agent-less session, it would be nice to have at least one way copy-paste of plain text that could be performed by transformation of the copied string to keyboard events and sending it through inputs channel. I guess that menu option to initiate paste would have to be added as well.

Use case are mainly virtualized servers with no x-server installed.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a linux guest, switch it to terminal
2. try to paste text
3.
  
Actual results:
nothing happens

Expected results:
text is pasted
