Mouse-marking text on page don't put it into mouse clipboard



  • I don't know when, but in last snapshot when i mark some text on page it didn't put it into mouse clipboard, co i cannot paste it by clicking mouse middle button. Personally i considered it as a BIG (very annoying) problem, so please, fix it. Thanks.



  • do other programs recognize middle clicks from your mouse? linux often has problems with function keys. are you trying to copy all highlighted text? my snapshot accessed clipboard fine, i am unsure what youre talking about.



  • This is a long-shot, & probably irrelevant for you, but just in case

    Do you possibly use Cairo-Dock, & specifically its Clipboard History applet? It can be configured to use or reject text selections [i'm the opposite of you, in that i hate loathe & detest selected text copying to clipboard, because i use my wheel-button for other reasons (never pasting)]. Check to see if this setting has changed [not often, but once or twice, some of my CD settings changed by themselves].

    If not CD, do you use Klipper? It also can be configured to accept or ignore text selections, so you could also check here.
