X11 style cut n paste support

Reported by: cryptr Owned by:
Priority: major Component: guest additions
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.4 Keywords: cut n paste
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Support for X11 cut n paste style between Windows host and <Insert OS> guest would be an awesome feature for VirtualBox to have.

Right now the clipboard style support proves very little usage for the experienced X11 user, since xterm cut n paste is done by mouse and not via ctrl commands.

The lack of X11 support makes VirtualBox very annoying to work with when it comes to X11 as Guest on Windows.

Keep up the good work!

This is on my todo list, but very far down I'm afraid. (Please do not ask for an estimated timeframe, it is not even that far up the list.)

We wouldn't fix this. Normal cut and paste works fine, also for terminals.
