What makes copy/paste work in LinuxMint, is there a default clipboard manager installed? In other distros this doesn't work if you close one application and paste in other.


Linut Mint 7 uses Parcellite Clipboard Manager. Other distros usually don't use clipboard managers by default.

  • In Linux Mint 12 parcellite is not installed by default, so it's not active.

  • What other distroy did you test? And what do you mean bei close one app and paste in other? Closing the source-app does not affect the clipboard itself (in any distro)

  • Ubuntu ( a bit older version) and Fedora 16. If you copy a text in firefox, close firefox, open chrome and paste in chrome, is not working.
