Copy and Paste

Latest response

I have tried multiple combinatios:
RHEL 5 VM with RHEL 5 client
RHEL 5 VM with RHEL 6 client
RHEL 6 VM with RHEL 6 client
RHEL 6 VM with RHEL 6 client
RHEL 6 VM with WindowsXP client

 

I have spice-vdagent and rhev-agent running in the VMs (rhel 5 from epel), and no matter what I do, I cannot copy text from the VM and paste it to a window on the client, and vice versa. Is there some sort of secret switch that is needed?

 

Thanks,

Kenny

It works for me.  When I select text in a Terminal in an EL6 guest, I see entries like the following in /var/log/spice-vdagentd/spice-vdagentd.log:
