Ubuntu Intrepid Host - Windows XP Guest - clipboard

Reported by: grahamb Owned by:
Component: clipboard Version: VirtualBox 2.1.4
Keywords: clipboard Windows XP Guest Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


Clipboard in Windows XP Guest (Ubuntu Intrepid host) not fully working. If you try to cut/copy text by either CTRL keys or context menu - the first time nothing goes to clipboard - you have to repeat the operation - then works for a while - then 'times out' and you need to copy/cut again - can be very annoying as Im working Visual Studio in Virtual Box in Ubuntu - works very well but this seems to a really obvious bug that noone has noticed or fixed - Please Fix Urgently !!!

Upgraded to 2.2.0 and now even worse instead of just timeouts and just clipboard stops working and needs repeated copys or cuts it now crahses and takes out the whole VM. Come on guys this defeates the object of a VM will have to switch to VMWare.

Thanks for absolutely no replies also, very not impressed

Try with version 2.2.2 (due out soon). There are a number of clipboard related fixes in that update. Support for the *free* version of VirtualBox is on a best effort basis only. Complaining won't help.
