yes, it's Oracle's VirtualBox. The thing is that it is working for the
Debian stable that I use, so the VirtualBox settings must be ok-ish. I
can only think it is the Ubuntu that is not playing ball. But I'll have
a look (for a long time we were plagued by two different clipboard
systems in Unix/X/whatever that were sometimes synchronized and
sometimes not.
Thanks for the response though - useful to know this isn't something
well-known to you guys that created LilyDev.
