    Default How to move pictures betweeen devices and applications

    I have to move pictures (usually png, jpg, tiff) between a thumb drive, files, Gimp and Scribus. As a newbie to SUSE 12.4 (from Win XP & 7) I'm accustomed to using copy & paste, but apparently that doesn't work here. I checked the manual (Beginning SUSE Linux, 2nd ed.), but couldn't find anything.about it. How??

    Hi Robertdi,

    why should copy & past not work? Maybe you can explain what you are exactly trying to do, and what openSUSE / window manager you are using? (12.4 does not exist).
    If you use a file manager (e.g. in KDE that is dolphin) you can use the usual ctrl+c / ctrl+v Your thump drive should appear in "places" down left. Or are you trying to copy / paste in between the applications? Even then it should work (although I don't know scribus). So, what exactly are you trying to do?

    Best regards

    kasi

    The document you refer to may be outdated
    Use this http://doc.opensuse.org/ instead

    GNOME 3.6.2

    copy / paste works fine

    even easier is dragging from one device to another using your file manager (dolphin) and you are given a dialogue to link / copy / move

    SUSE Paste

    easier again than the above screenshot would be using split screen in Dolphin.

    SUSE Paste
