Copy/Paste With VNC Linux Server

    How can I paste text into a VNC server running on linux with Cotvnc viewer?

    If I run "VNC Config" utility in background (vncconfig) in the linux box I can copy text from linux and paste it into Mac OS X, but not the other way around: copy text from Mac OS X and paste it into the linux machine thru the cotvnc viewer window.

    I tried the same thing running the VNC viewer from Win XP connected to the very same VNC Server in linux. Cut and Paste WORKS FINE in both ways with no sweat.

    Any suggestion?

      Does Edit -> Paste not work?

      No Jason, it does not work with the linux box.

      It works when connected to a Windows VNC Server, though.

        I believe we've already got a bug filed about middle-mouse-click pasting not working with Linux servers.  Maybe you should add your experiences to the bug report.
