[SOLVED] Anyone else having problems with gpm?
August 19, 2010 09:09PM
I was wondering whether anyone else has tried highlighting text in virtual terminals. The mouse, even with gpm, refuses to do X-style copy and paste. It highlights the entire screen up to where the cursor is.

Maybe the changes to accomodate touchpads affected gpm? BTW this is live TOPAZ on a desktop which has no touchpad; I have also selected 'no' to the prompt asking if I want new settings for the mouse.

If I hold the alt key down while highlighting the text, it will highlight the words that I want (and not from the top of the screen). I also have to hold the alt key down while pressing the middle mouse button.
