View Full Version : [ubuntu] Disable X clipboard

December 19th, 2008, 11:22 AM
AFAIK there are 2 clipboards:
- a Gnome clipboard, which uses standard Ctrl-C/Ctrl-X/Ctrl-V mechanism,
- a X clipboard (aka select clipboard), where every selected text is automatically copied to the clipboard and then pasted via a middle mouse button.

Now, a simple question - is it possible to disable the X clipboard? I don't use it, I don't like it - for me it just leads to the annoying and random text inserts.
