- Cut buffers
What is the difference between these?
Experimenting with xclip and gedit:
Nothing happens, as far as I can tell
Again, as far as I can tell, does not affect gedit
paste in edit and context menu is disabled, but pressing
control-v causes the text I want to paste.
Copying in gedit
Appears to be setting
What is each used for? How are they usually accessed in programs? How is it implemented? Are they properties on the root window (if so, what are their names)?
I understand clip buffers are used in xterm when you select text, and are pasted when you middle click. Do any other programs use cut buffers?
