Ubuntu :: Copy & Paste Not Working?

Aug 15, 2010

I can't copy & paste text from an Evolution email message without first pasting the text into an editor like gedit or a word processor and recopying it a second time... Then it works fine... I thought the problem may have been a Delphi forum specific problem, but it also does the same thing on this board...

I running 10.04 with the default Evolution mail program.

BTW on Delphi I can turn off the wysiwyg editor and paste as "source" and it works just fine without the paste and recopy step...

OpenSUSE :: Mouse Highlight For Copy / Paste Stopped Working

Feb 2, 2010

I just noticed that highlighting text and middle button clicking no longer copies and pastes as it has it has been for years. I haven't upgraded anything or installed any new software so this is a bit confusing for me. How I may restore this function? BTW, it doesn't work anywhere, terminal, firefox, etc. For clarity, the mouse itself works, I can point, click, etc... it is just the copy/paste function that has failed -disappeared- Using Suse and KDE desktop

Ubuntu :: Control-c - Control-v - Copy And Paste Functions - Stopped Working

Jan 19, 2011

I don't know how this happened, but my keyboard copy and paste functions have stopped working. Oddly enough, I discovered that I can only copy and paste by using the third mouse button. Pressing down on the scroll wheel after highlighting text copies the text, pressing it again pastes it Ican still use the Edit-copy and Edit-paste menu functions.

I'm sure it has something to do with all the tinkering I have been doing with my desktop. I have been experimenting with CompizConfig and Cairo dock, changing my themes and things of this nature.

Ububtu 10.04.1

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Copy/Paste - Garble ?

Oct 21, 2010

I am experiencing an issue where the first time I copy and paste it works fine. But after that it just pastes garble. I've installed glipper and if I clear the clipboard after every copy/paste its fine.

At first I upgraded from 10.04 and this came up so I thought I would just do a clean install of 10.10. It was still happening.

Ubuntu :: Copy And Paste Does Not Work Much Of The Time

Mar 7, 2010

In Ubuntu, why does copy and past not work for most applications. I can't tell you how many times I have copied some text and went to a new application and Past is greyed out. For example, in Firefox I can highlight some text like "Belmont Diner", then right click and choose "Copy". Then go up to the Google search bar and right click and Paste is not an option. I have tried doing this using Crtl C to copy and Ctrl V to paste. It does not work...most of the time. Every once in a while it will but most of the time it does not. I can repeat the action to make sure I really copied the data and still no luck. Sometimes it works but many times it does not.

Nov 29, 2010

I am running ubunutu 9.10 and am having problems with the Kate text editor (v3.3.2). I leave my computer on for many weeks at a time as it is part of a network and others use it to run code on.

Infrequently but regularly enough to cause me trouble I can no longer paste text I copy from kate. I can copy and paste within kate, but I cant copy from kate and paste into the terminal or thuderbird, or firefox etc.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Copy And Paste Broken Since Last Update

Jan 4, 2010

I started having some serious issues with my mouse after running updates yesterday. I am basically unable to copy and paste any text and this is making editing essays a major major major PITA! Basically when I click and drag my mouse to copy, the highlight looks good until I unclick then nothing is highlighted. Even trying to double click on words to highlight single words results in the entire paragraph being hightlighted. For my two laptops running 9.10 I have to disable the touchpad, I prefer a usb mouse, after logging in, but if leave the touchpad enabled the problem still exists.

This problem only showed up yesterday, after the update as best I can tell, and disabling my touchpad for like the past 4 or 5 releases, including 9.10. I run xubu/xfce4, but I have booted into Gnome and its the exact same problem. I have the problem on two laptops, both running 9.10, and both were updated yesterday.This is not one of those childish "that's it I am going back to winblowz, Linux suxorz!" , but I will have to temporarily go back and use MS Office until I can find out what is wrong here, b/c I gotta get essays written and without being able to copy text it is very rudimentary.

Ubuntu :: How To Copy And Paste Large Chunks Of Data

Jun 16, 2011

I want to copy about 40GB - to a partiton. There are two hard drives in my box one won't boot but I can aaccess it and mount partitions and I aim to move data from it to a new bootable hard drive. Doing a simple cp copy command may not be the best way to copy and paste such a large chunk? Also I want to backup the data I plan to copy/paste using a USB hard drive to backup. But I could also paste data from the backup to the new drive instead of from old internal hd to new hd. - that's another option.
