xfce4-appfinder copies junk to selection clipboard.
Last modified: 2013-01-27 10:39:24 EST
Description of problem:
xfce4-appfinders completion facility shows recently ran app names as selected. This behavior fills selection clipboard with words like 'ogle-chrome' or 'rminal'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't see this behavior with the Xfce 4.10 xfce4-appfinder, so it was either fixed in that or something here just doesn't show it. ;(
I'll look and see if I can see any commits related to this in 4.10.
There is a problem but not in xfce4-appfinder but in parcellite. Sorry for false alarm.
ok, moving over to there...
I am using parcellite and I don't see this. Can you please give me detailed instructions to reproduce the problem?
Enable both clipboards and "synchronize clipboards" in parcellite. In xfce4-appfinder use completion, press enter when a recently ran app name completed, like in screenshot.
This is no bug but the expected behavior.
1. If you type "go" the appfinder autocompletes it with "ogle-chrome".
2. The completed text is selected, that means it becomes the primary clipboard, so it ends up in parcellite.
Please disable the primary clipboard, it was never designed to handle things like this as they did not exist in the good old UNIX days.
