#1827 Copy doesn't work


I had used wxMaxima before, and I remember being able to use CTRL + C to copy text. I built maxima from source in Ubuntu 9.04, and now CTRL + C doesn't work. Even if I use the secondar mouse button to copy text, I can't paste it. If I enable the "Copy selection" option in the preferences menu, it does copy everything, but I would like to be able to select anything without erasing the clipboard contents. Thanks

Maxima version: 5.19.2Maxima build date: 8:27 9/10/2009host type: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnulisp-implementation-type: CLISPlisp-implementation-version: 2.44.1 (2008-02-23) (built on loszerafin [])

    The files I was working on were mounted on a FAT32 partition which I mounted modifying /etc/fstab. I recently changed the fstab without any backup, so I can't say what options I had exactly. Nevertheless, with the new configuration, CTRL + C works fine

    LABEL=DISK /media/DISK vfat auto,user,uid=user,gid=user,umask=007,iocharset=utf8 0 0

    I guess that the writing-reading permission of DISK were not properly set before and, somehow, this prevented the CTRL+C command... who knows. Sorry for the inconvenience. I wanted to post this in case someone had a similar problem.
