xclipboard resolves Aqua-X11 copy/paste barrier NOT
Authored by: cyberRodent on Oct 04, '04 06:42:18PM

This hint does not work (for me at least) - os 10.3.5 with X11 1.0 Xfree 4.3.0 (from apple)

I can copy from X to X or from Aqua to Aqua -- Rarely, when the gods are happy, I can copy from x to aqua using the Command-C Copy from the Apple Menu at the top and I have NEVER been able to copy from Aqua to X -- using xclipboard does not seem to have any effect wrt copy and paste - I get by by makinglittle text files with what I want to copy and paste....(ug)

If someone CAN in fact pull this off in either direction please post what you did to make this so - prefereably without the need of an external mouse (yes, i'm using a powerbook)

maybe the windowmanager has a role to play here? - I'm using Enlightenment FWIW.

kisses, Jeff

Yes, it's your window manager. Well, sort of. Apple's QuarzWM has a built-in clipboard sync feature. If you run a different WM you should add a line to your .xinitrc:
  /usr/X11R6/bin/quartz-wm --only-proxy &
  (start your WM here)
This will tell it to just do the clipboard syncing and leave the window management up to somebody else. You might also try autocutsel that Mark Moorcroft mentioned above, which should serve the same purpose.
