Copy and paste stops working with "Broken pipe" error
Submitted by Daniel Rowe
Copy and paste when on wayland and Gnome stops working some of the time.
I have noticed this when copying text out of gedit and into other apps. It works then it stops, i.e. you copy a block of text and try a paste it into a different app and the buffer is empty, nothing copies. Save, exit gedit reopen and it works again for a while. I have noticed it doing this with gedit to firefox and gedit to LibreOffice Writer. When this happens and I tey and paste into LibreOffice Writer, writer just get a busy spinner but not text is copied.
Maybe issue with wayland native app to X11 app? As when this happens I can still copy and paste in gedit itself and another gedit window.
When this happens and I try and paste into LibreOffice Writer, writer just get a busy spinner but not text is copied.
This is in the logs when it happens.
gedit: Error writing selection data: Error writing to file descriptor: Broken pipe
I raised this bug with the Fedora.
