I think the simple fix is to create a binding on <1> that sets the focus to the widget. If it is disabled but has focus, selecting and copying should work.

Cut and pasting from a tk::text widget seems problematic when
the widget is "-state disabled". It just won't accept input.

This is not the case on Windows and Xorg.

Does anyone know a work around beside leaving the widget "-state normal" ?
