Description Jaroslaw Sosnicki 1999-04-16 14:49:05 UTC
I was in process of editin netscape email message and I was
trying to cut and paste in techt opend vit vi in xterminal

I was able to cut/paste text within xterm or between xterms
but not into netscape message editing window.

I am using beta4.1 (5.9.9) on i386
rpm -q netscape-communicator
rpm -q netscape-common

Looks like a bug to me.

this looks like a netscape bug because I can paste from the current
xterms into Netscape 4.08 just fine...

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-19 15:05:59 UTC
I can cut and paste from vi under gnome-terminal & xterm into
the netscape compose message window fine here.

Comment 3 Alexandre Blanchette 2000-01-14 04:07:59 UTC
to problem is not with netscape's cut/paste buffer, it's that you don't know how
to use copy & paste with linux

see bug 7940 for a bit of explanation about copy & paste
