Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong:
I' m using Freemind on SUSE 9.2 with Gnome. When copying a branch or even plain text and trying to paste into another application - nothing happens. It seems Freemind is not using the same clipboard because when pasting into let's say Open Office Writer I get pasted the content of the clipboard from any other application - only with Freemind it doesn't work.
In spite of that I can cut/copy/paste perfectly within Freemind.
When using KDE on SUSE 9.2 I didn't have that problem - seems to be a problem with Gnome!?
just made a small test under Debian/KDE, and the result is: copy & paste works but only if I paste with the middle mouse button (Ctrl+V doesn't work).
I know that the "mouse selection clipboard" and the "copy clipboard" can be 2 different things, klipboard under KDE has an option to synchronize both. I'm not very familiar with GNOME, but perhaps there is a similar option, or you can try to paste with the middle mouse button.
Tell if this helps, I'll add it to the Linux FAQ.
Yes, that works as you described it. Thanks a lot!
KDE's "Klipper" seems to be the program that synchronizes the KDE-Klipboard with the X-clipboard (middle-mouse-button), a basic function of X.
I didn't find a similar option for gnome up to now, but if I find one I will post it here.
