xclipboard resolves Aqua-X11 copy/paste barrier
Authored by: Lliwynd on Mar 12, '07 03:17:22PM

I was also having paste issues to a remote xterm. I had running locally and used ssh-X to get into the remote machine. Then paste would only work in the original xterm. If I opened a new xterm on the remote machine, I wouldn't be able to paste.

The solution was to use 'trusted X11 forwarding' in ssh (as opposed to normal X11 forwarding): ssh -Y. Apparently there is a security hole if you do this in that root on the remote machine can keylog, etc. But it allows paste to work.
