Copy and Paste?


This has been bugging me for awhile, I cannot copy from a term, or kate editor, or pretty much anything and paste it into opera. I can copy from opera and paste into anything just not the other way around. I can copy and paste inside of opera (one window to another) Is there any particular reason why? I can copy from kate and such and paste into Konquerer with no problems. Thanks

What commands are you using? In the past I have had similar problems using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V but using Ctrl+Ins and Shift+Ins usually works.

Just highlight what you want to copy, then middle click where you want to paste.

Or, since you're a cli man, use " ctrl+A - esc " to cut and " ctrl+A - ] " to paste in 'screen'

I tried all of the above, once again, When I copy from kate or koffice or anything, it shows up in my clipboard, but I just cannot paste into opera. I can paste into kate or koffice etc... Does opera use a different clipboard or something?

This gets frustrating when I want to cut a piece of programming out and paste it in a post, or if I have an error I want to paste into a post.

Ok I found it by accident, if I copy something from a term or kate or kword, or whatever I can paste it into opera by clicking my middle mouse button, (I have a microsoft intellmouse with a scrollwheel in the middle) So now it works but does anyone know why? I can do a cont + c and cont + v everywhere else but in opera

You can change how the Klipper behaves, and selecting an item in it's listing while focused in eg Opera should make that item the current thing to be pastable in eg Opera
