The window that does have a menu has a "top" bar that says "terminal".
The window that does not have a menu...won't that prevent me from using the copy and paste items?
I just tried to paste into the window without a menu, using the control key and V. It wouldn't paste it--gave me some sort of error message.
As I siad in an earlier post, paste by middle clicking and copy by selecting.
I use it all the time even with applications that support shortcuts and menus, since it's so much faster and more convenient.
Also, note that it uses a different clipboard than the mormal method, which means that test copied using the normal method won't paste by middle-clicking, and text copied by selecting won't paste the normal way.
One thing I don't understand from your instructions is the xterm copy procedure. You say just to "select" to copy. But don't you have to do something after you select it? I tried selecting and then middle clicking on the text in its original location, then middle clicking in xterm, but it didn't do the paste. It didn't do anything.
Maybe you have another terminal installed (I would try "konsole"). If that fails, does the "other" terminal that comes up have some kind of "Help->About" item in its menu? If so, use it and post what it says.
