    Default X Selection Mechan. (Copy&Paste) does not work with SuSE11.1


    I installed SuSE 11.1 and realized that the X-selection mechanism did
    not work properly.
    It is not possible to reliably copy & paste text strings between 2
    konsole (e.g. xterm) windows. Sometimes it works, mostly not. Cannot
    find a rule when it works and when not.
    It makes no difference how the text is copied (by double-clicking with
    left mouse button or highlighting with pressed left mouse button); the
    paste with middle-mouse button does mostly not work.
    Has anybody made the same experience or does someone know a remedy.

    Have you tried using shift|insert to paste?

    Do you mean holding the Shift button while pasting with middle mouse
    button - I did not try it.

    My problem is that I cannot check it, because I replaced my system by
    Suse 10.3 which formerly worked with no problems.

    I tried also the current Ubuntu (10-08) where I had problems with
    3D/Mesa (which I need).
    So I tried SuSE 11.1 again but with Gnome where the X-selection problem
    seems to be better at first. But it worked also not reliable.
    Nevertheless, I feeled it worked better than with KDE.
    After multiple boot operations the system got more and more boot
    problems until it totally stucks during boot.

    So I reinstalled my old 10.3...
    Installing Linux is not always easy.

    under KDE4 I always disable to clipboard utility in the tray, forgot
    what it is called.
    As I don't need a utility to handle my clipboard, I simply expect the
    last thing I copied or cut to be available under paste.

    Don't know if gnome offers something similar by default.

    Do you mean klipper?
    I suspected this application which was running in the panel by default.
    So I closed it, but the problem continued.
    Nevertheless with Gnome it also did not work properly.
