Question Typical UNIX copy / paste gone since Fedora 14


Hello,

it seems the simple copy by selection and paste with right mouse buttom function which are typical under UNIX is gone since Fedora 14.

I wonder how I can reenable this convenient function.

thanks for sharing your insight!

Are you still able to cut/copy/paste from the keyboard?
ctrl+x cut
ctrl+c copy
ctrl+v paste

Try using the middle mouse button to paste, instead of the right button.

fedora 14 is End of life and unsupported
the current is fedora 16

also gnome 3 in fedora 16 CHANGED a lot of things
you might want to read the fedora release notes
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/index.html
and the fedora forum guide section
"Gnome3 Tweaks & Solutions -- F15 -THESE ARE FOR F15 and may not work with F16"
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=263006

also search for "gnome3 tips" in Google

Chances are you just need to use the middle button (or both left and right buttons simultaneously). I've never used a Linux system - be it Fedora 1-16, SUSE, RHEL, Ubuntu, Debian, or otherwise - that used the right mouse button to paste what had been highlighted. It's always been the middle button in my experience.

Hi,

thanks so much for responding. You're right. the paste doesn't work with right mouse buttom, but it works with the scroll buttom.
