AquaX11 Cut/Paste
Authored by: iMMersE on Jan 10, '03 11:55:16AM

As far as I've worked out, it's the quartz-wm which provides the Aqua<>X11 cut/pasting ability. I'm running blackbox and I can't cut and paste between Aqua and X11.

Anyone got any ideas about getting it working with blackbox?

In order to have Cut/Paste when using a different window manager (i.e. balckbox or oroborosx) you need to use xcutsel. It should be installed by default with X, and will either be on /usr/X11R6/bin or, if Fink was used, under /sw somewhere. Sorry, but I don't use Fink, so cannot be more precise.

Does cut and paste work with text only, or does it work with graphics images too?

I've only gotten cut/paste to work with text - very frustrating, as I do a lot more image than text work lately.

That's been my experience too. I run the R statistical package under X-Windows and it would be nice to be able to cut and paste graphics into documents running under OS X (there are other ways to do what I want of course, just not as easy as cut and paste).

From the related Apple "Technical Q & A" at this URL: http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2001/qa1232.html

Q: How do I make copy and paste work with other window managers?

A: Running quartz-wm --only-proxy will activate the selection proxying features, but none of the window management code.
