How can I copy image from website?


I'm trying to copy an image straight from a website without saving it first. If I rightclick on the image in any of the browsers which are currently installed on my system (FireFox, Mozilla, Epiphany) I don't get an option to do this. However, under windows and using either firefox or IE I do have this option. I'm guessing it is something related to Gnome, but how can I get this to work?

So far the only thing I've bneen able to do is save the image to HDD and then insert it into the document I'm preparing, but I'd like to skip that extra step.

i'm on XFCE and i don't have this option either, so it's not a Gnome issue... i suspect there's probably an extension for the linux firefox which would add this capability to the right-click menu, but i'm not sure...

But it's not limited to firefox, and firefox for windows does this fine. There must be a way. Can anyone point me to it?

btw. I've also tried to install the Java run environment, but I can't seem to get firefox to recognise this..? help, please?

It's probably related to the not-so-great clipboard rather than your browser. I just save it locally.

Did you make the link in the plugins directory as described in the FAQ?

So do I, but it's a bit of a bother if you want to do it more than once. Is there a better clip-board app?

I don't know if that will work or not. According to the FAQ, ... it should go someplace like /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.4/plugins/

Thanks for the link. I'm starting from scratch to see if I can get it right.
