Clipboard problems

I’m just trying to copy an IP address from a fedora 38 clipboard and paste it into Dom0 qubes settings for the same VM using Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Shift+C, Ctrl+Shift+V, Ctrl+V. Although it shows it copied the contents of the fedora 38 vm, it’s just not pasting into Dom0.

The global clipboard only works between qubes. It can’t be used to do qubes → dom0 for security reasons, but it can be used in the other direction (dom0 → qubes). In other words, you’ll have to type it manually.

Or using the command:

qvm-run --pass-io <src-vm> 'cat /path/to/file_in_src_domain' > /path/to/file_name_in_dom0

that comes from the documentation

If it’s a file, yes. This is about the global clipboard and not being able to paste to dom0 from a qube.

All you have to do is copy the text into the file. Well, that’s what I do when I have a long text to copy into D0 (like a script for example)…

Yes, but we’re only talking about one IP here. It would take longer to send a file to dom0 than to write it manually, but I see what you mean if it’s a long text.
