End Of Line is not converted in SPICE during copy-paste operations between host and Windows guest in KVM on RHEL 6

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • End Of Line is not converted in SPICE copy-paste operation between host and Windows guest in KVM.

There is no end of line conversion while copying text from a Red Hat host to a Windows Virtual Machine (e.g. Notepad).
Any Windows application that is not able to handle linux-style line ending (LF) will handle pasted text with multiple lines as a single line.

  • spice-gtk-0.14-7.el6.x86_64
