Clipboard ceases function

So your qubes clipboard stops functioning.

You can ++ctrl+shift+c++ and get the notification that it was copied to the global clipboard, but you cannot paste it with ++ctrl+shift+v++?

Do a sudo journalctl -xef in dom0 and try again.

For me there was a

qrexec: qubes.ClipboardPaste: sourceqube-> targetqube: error loading policy: /etc/qubes/policy.d/30-user.policy:19: wrong number of fields

Informing me, that i had broken my qrexec rules, which lead to the clipboard action failing to validate.

After fixing the rule in line 19 it worked again.

solved btw.

Just so new users with the same problem know that such stuff can happen and how to troubleshoot that.
