Cut and paste between linux apps?
Hi all, just a quick question
Anyone know how I can cut and paste from a StarOffice 6 beta document into an E-mail message in kmail. (I am using KDE on Mandrake 8.1)
The text vanishes when I cut it from the document but nothing happens when i try and paste it into the E-mail, using either crtl-v or selecting paste from the edit menu.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
On a plus note Mozilla now runs rock solid, I just had to turn off java.
You can't do that; its a known bug that Sun is working on.
Cut and Paste between apps in Linux is a weak area - the best I have ever seen is with (yuck) Corel Linux ...this is one area in which Windows does have an advantage.
I have found that Star Office 5.x will allow to paste a document into say... this Sysopt reply box, but Star Office 6 beta will not because Mozilla no longer appears to be integrated into the suite. But neither app would allow paste directly into kmail.
Cut & paste in Linux a weak point???
what about marking/middle clicking? Unix uses that for ages!
You're so right otheos. That's how I do it.
BTW: What's up with the mntsnow forums ?? Have'nt been able to connect for days.

Given enough time & money,
Microsoft will re-invent Unix.
Try 22.214.171.124 (one more copy/paste with the middle button for you)
I stand corrected!
...maybe I should have said copy and paste in Linux/KDE/Star Office apps doesn't work like Windows (e.g. mark/right click/copy/paste).
sheese~ ya gotta be more careful about what you say here in the forum than President Bush addressing Muslims.

Mark/middle-click would not work for me to copy text from Star Office 6.0 into Mozilla or vice-versa
I was only trying to make sure everybody is aware of this "trick" rather than offer a solution to the specific problem. Should have been more ....descriptive.
