Clipboard managers do not work with Wayland

Asked by Sergio Bossa on 2017-11-14

I'm running Ubuntu 17.10 with Wayland enabled and I noticed clipboard managers do not properly work: more specifically, the selected item from the history is not pasted into the current window. Everything works fine with X11.

Is that a known issue?

Thanks.

ClipIt, Parcellite, CopyQ.

Are there any bugs reported?

see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArtfulAardvark/ReleaseNotes#Desktop
"Also, some screenshot and screencast apps and all remote desktop server apps do not currently work on GNOME on Wayland. As a workaround, you can use the Ubuntu on Xorg session."

Thanks, is there any specific issue I can follow to track progress?

All I can suggest is report a bug. I'm seeing a lot of noise about this sort of thing online

Can you help with this problem?
