copy/paste trough vnc

Post by mkorn » Tue Oct 16, 2018 1:27 pm

It would be helpful to have possibility to copy/paste text from/to linux guest machines (using vnc?)
After 2 min of googling I found thet it is possible to do using SPICE
Any ideas how to get it working?

UltraVNC does not support such copy/paste

RealVNC maybe

SPICE solution works just fine
Change QEMU options:

-machine type=pc-1.0,accel=kvm -vga qxl -spice port=5930,password=password -usbdevice tablet -boot order=dc -device virtio-serial -chardev spicevmc,id=vdagent,debug=0,name=vdagent -device virtserialport,chardev=vdagent,name=com.redhat.spice.0

Run client:

C:\Program Files\VirtViewer v7.0-256\bin>remote-viewer.exe spice://192.168.100.100:5930

Could you add it to the GUI?

I can select text in the Debug window of the IDE, but cant get it into the clipboard. Any chance of making this possible please?
