Linux "As you already know, if I have to sit down in front of a computer, I want it to be running the Gnome desktop on Linux. I've watched it mature from a downright ugly, needlessly complex playground for geeks, to an attractive, simple interface that holds its own against commercial alternatives. And yet, every day I still encounter rough edges that make me think there aren't nearly enough folks out there hacking away at this stuff. I'd like to watch." Read more at PCWorld. Warning: While some of the author's gripes can be fixed by installing third party applications or plugins, or by tweaking Alsa etc, the point remains that his default distribution and/or Gnome did not come with these conveniences by default. Most people don't like tweaking stuff, they want things that "just work".

Doesn't work for me. It might be a per-program thing and not a java thing. Middle click paste is a different signal than paste (and usually a different clipboard too)..

Yeah.. I've been trying out cut and paste on a few Java programs on Linux with the 1.5 Sun JRE.

Jedit and Arachnophilia:
Freedesktop clipboard under GNOME works
Unix middle click paste doesn't

DrawSWF:
Freedesktop clipboard N/A
Unix middle click paste works erratically

Freemind:
Freedesktop clipboard under GNOME works
