Hello, all. Within the last several days, copying & pasting between X applications (running under Apple's bundled X11.app) and Aqua applications mysteriously stopped working on my 10.5.8 system, and nothing I've tried has any effect on the problem. Copying & pasting from one X app to another (e.g. between multiple xterm windows) works fine, as does copying & pasting between Aqua apps, but never the twain shall meet -- each environment has its own idea of what's in the clipboard, and they don't overwrite each other like they're supposed to. Though I had changed a few settings that I theorized might have caused this (e.g. enabling "Emulate three button mouse" in the X11 Preferences, and changing the "Full keyboard access" setting in the Keyboard & Mouse System Preferences to "All controls" to enable tabbing to dropdown lists in browsers), reverting those back to their previous settings did not fix the problem. Therefore I have no idea what could have caused this issue, unless it was an OS X Software Update (or perhaps, I suppose, an update to Office for Mac) that I installed. I've tried various things without luck, including the following: * Restarting X11 and rebooting don't help. * Some people reporting copy & paste issues in the past reported that running xclipboard fixed their problem, but this didn't work for me. It just confirms the behavior that I see via test copies & pastes. * I tried installing rxvt via fink to make sure it wasn't just an xterm issue, but it behaved the same way. * I tried installing and running fink's autocutsel, but it had no effect other than drawing a strange dot at the bottom-right of my desktop. * I tried changing my .xinitrc to run quartz-wm in --only-proxy mode and then running twm as my window manager, but the behavior was the same in that case. Any thoughts as to why quartz-wm's clipboard proxying seems to have spontaneously stopped working, and/or how I might go about getting it to start again? -- Dan Harkless http://harkless.org/dan/ _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
