    EnableClipboard is set to “both” on both machines; however, the copy function only works one way: From Linux to Windows.

    Attempting to copy from Windows to Linux fails silently.

    I’ve recently upgraded the Linux box to Fedora 36, and recently gotten a new Windows 10 laptop – but they both seem to work well together in all other respects. And I can transfer files from each one to the other.

    I’m using NoMachine 7.9.2 on both.

    I can’t recall having had this problem before … any clues?





    We aren’t aware of copy and paste issues between Fedora/Windows, or working one way only.

    Are you using Wayland, and what DE is installed there?


    Well, that’s encouraging …

    I’m using Gnome 42 and Wayland.

    This may be a Gnome problem: journalctl has hundreds of lines like

    /usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[2401]: (EE) event3  – HOLTEK USB-HID Keyboard: client bug: event processing lagging behind by 28ms, your system is too slow

    And thousands like

    gnome-terminal-[4238]: void terminal_screen_shell_preexec(VteTerminal*): assertion ‘!priv->between_preexec_and_precmd’ failed

    The timings seems to correlate with my attempts to copy and paste.

    And I’m pretty sure my system is not too slow … Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16 core/32 thread 3.4GHz / 128GB RAM / 2 × GeForce 1080 Ti


    I rebooted the Windows machine again, and the problem disappeared.

    I guess it really is true that one should simply reboot Windows whenever there’s a problem of any sort.
