Ticket #3105 (closed defect: fixed)
Copy/paste to/from OpenSolaris 2008.11 guest doesn't work -> works in 2.2.0
|Reported by:||julianct||Owned by:|
Since VB 2.1.0 I've been unable to use copy/paste between my Windows XP SP2 host and OpenSolaris 2008.11 (32-bit) guest. This is still the case in VB 2.1.2.
Mostly the copy/paste operations do nothing, but sometimes they will crash the host application I'm pasting into (e.g. Notepad).
If I kill and restart the VBoxClient on the guest then sometimes copy/paste starts working for a while, but generally fails after a few minutes.
I've confirmed that the 2.1.2 additions are installed and running on the OpenSolaris guest. I also tried a clean install of OpenSolaris 2008.11 in case there was any cruft left over from previous upgrades.
I've tried other guests (Windows 7 beta, Ubuntu 8.0.4) and copy/paste works fine there. Copy/paste with a Solaris 10U6 (32-bit) guest doesn't work, though.
I've attached the VBox.log from the OpenSolaris VM. I can see from it that at least the clipboard is enabled:
00:00:02.223 VBoxSharedClipboard mode: Bidirectional
Please let me know if you need any further info.
