    strange ... when copy & paste between xterm and other application ...


    When I copy & paste stuffs from xterm to other application such as, gvim, firefox, it failed. It seems only can remember the stuff I copied in the GUI app, not the X app. But The content can be copied & pasted to X app from GUI (KDE). And things works fine between xterms.

    Can anyone help me?

    If you have a middle mouse button, or wheel, highlight the text you want to copy to another program, go to the other program, then middle click the mouse.

    It works for me every time.

    Cool ... It works ...

    I never think about the middle key in KDE, since it belongs to the world of X. : )

    Thanks!
