Clipboard Syncing Not Working Properly
|Reported by:||thedaniel@…||Owned by:||jeremyhu@…|
Description (last modified by jeremyhu@…) (diff)
Tested both on Mac OS 10.6.7. and Mac OS 10.7.1 using XQ 2.7.0 rc1 and all previous versions
Clipboard contents from X11 to Mac aqua does not work until the "Enable syncing" in the Clipboard tab of the XQuartz Preferences panel is toggled.
I don't know what component it is, maybe the server or maybe the window manager, but please fix.
Example app that I know it happens with: theWord http://www.theword.net/ . I don't use theWord, but I was just testing it for a friend, but it does happen using theWord. Please note, this is a Windows application in a WINE wrapper.

1.) Restart your Mac 2.) Launch theWord 3.) Select a word or phrase 4.) Use either keyboard shortcut or from the Edit menu "Copy" from the X11/WINE app 5.) When you find paste not working in a Native Mac aqua app, try toggling the "Enable syncing" off/on from the Pasteboard tab of XQuartz Preferences panel. You can also try copying from a Native Mac application first. (Suggestion:Before and after, check your Mac's clipboard by going to the Finder and selecting Edit -> Show Clipboard.)
Hope this helps you replicate the disease.
