Question simple copy/paste problem

Hi,

Previously I have worked in Linux systems (fedora, rhel, centOS) where when I select any text with mouse, it will be automatically copied and can be pasted with right click.

Now I'm using rhel 4 with kde 3.3.x but its not coping while selecting text with mouse and display Menu when Right Click. I dont want this behavior. I have lots of text copy/paste work so please tell me how to configure kde to enable me automatic copy and right click paste.

Thanks a lot

I'm no KDE expert, but maybe your KDE version is too old, or it's a RHEL 4 problem.

Thanks falko for the reply.

I have switched to Gnome but found similar problem there also, so, better to upgrade my system now..

well, can you please advise me what should I prefer amoung CentOS 5.1 and Fedora 8? I have both in DVDs. My main work is to monitor/configure remote servers and perform day to day desktop work.

Regards,

Out of these two, I'd use Fedora. It's more up-to-date, comes with more packages and has better hardware support. But overall, I'd use Ubuntu.

friends,

I'm still out of luck. I've formatted and installed newer CentOS 5 in my system with updated kde but still I cant paste with right click nor copy text while select. The same is happening in Fedora also.

anybody, can please point something in this regard as how can I configure my CentOS box to copy the text as I select it and paste it on right click.

thanks buddy for a reply. but that's not what I'm looking for. I know the shortcuts such as Ctrl+Ins for copy and Shift+Del for paste from keyboard.

What I am thinking about the ability to copy text automatically as soon as you select it (with mouse) and paste it with right click.
