Cannot copy and paste ...

I can't copy & paste anymore ... nothing gets copied.

Any ideas as to why this might be happening? At first, I thought it was just a bug in MyIE, as I couldn't copy / paste an URL's. But it doesn't work anywhere, as I've just tried it in various other apps.

This is the first time I've ever seen it not work system wide. With MyIE, this has been something I've noticed from time to time ... another reason I assumed it was a bug in MyIE.

Gonna reboot and see if it clears up whatever's fucked up. If not ... well shit. What would stop it from working? I checked my services, and can't find anything pertaining to the clipboard ... and as I've no idea when this started for sure ... I dunno if it's some program I've installed causing it.

It's been about a week or so since I d'ld it. I did have it running though.

And yeah, copy/paste is working again after rebooting. I also have gaim, and MyIE up and running too.

That's pretty fucked up. Dunno what caused it. I wonder if it might have something to do with gaim though ... I hadn't thought of that until just as my system was restarting.

Yup, it's gaim causing the problem. Just checked their bug reports, and that's one of 'em listed. From what people have said, if you just close Gaim, it should release the clipboard. And someone also suggested pasting whatever's in the clipboard into the text entry box in an IM convo, and then close gaim, and that will work if simply closing it doesn't.

That's pretty shitty. Seems like it's been around a while too. Hope they fix it ... you know... soon.

Not sure if the link will work, but here's the link to the bug report

edit: Oh yeah... it only happens when you actually copy/paste from a gaim window, either within gaim, or to another program. So if you never copy/paste from gaim, all should work well, as it is currently for me.

The GAIM windows version hasnt been out forever, they dont have anywhere near as many people keeping up with it as they do the linux client.
