I have found the mouse support for cut, copy and paste to be spotty but it seems to work for the most part. There are some more modern apps that support the ^C/^V/^X of Win32.

For example, I can copy with ^C from gnumeric and ^V paste into StarOffice, etc. Star Office didn't like the middle button for paste. When I hit the middle button, it allows me to use the mouse to scroll positions.

Xterm brought up various menu options with the middle button instead of paste; But pasting can be done via the menu.

I was able to use both the mouse and ^C/^V/^X in Opera for cut and paste operations. I reckon it is just a trial and error process. But now I have an idea of what to try when I need to cut and paste from one app into another (and that's important stuff!)

freespeak -- GNOME frontend to online translator engines. SYNOPSIS
freespeak [--version] [-h, --help] DESCRIPTION
With FreeSpeak you can translate text and web pages using online translation engines. To perform a translation select your translator of choice. Then you select the languages through which you wish to translate your data. Finally press the "Translate" button. You can translate both text and web pages. Some translators don't support both modes so it may happen that your preferred translator is not present in the drop down list. You can tune all FreeSpeak settings in the preferences dialog. Copy to clipboard Copy the translated data to the clipboard once the translation is complete. Paste from clipboard Paste data to be translated, from the clipboard to the GUI. This only happens when you open a new translation. If you are trying to perform a web page translation and the clipboard is not holding a valid URL, FreeSpeak is not going to paste it in the URL entry. Default translator The translator to use every time you open a new translation. It will be set in the drop down list only if the translation mode you requested is supported by the translator you chose. Key bindings Set several desktop-wide key bindings for doing quick translation operations. OPTIONS
