All my Windows10 VMs have a problem: when I press ctrl-shift-C i get the message “keyboard was copied to qube and cleared” and when I press ctrl-shift-V just nothing happens. I use crossbuilt QWT for now. Any ideas what could be the reason and how to fix it?
- on the vm you want to copy from (win10 vm in this case)
ctrl+C → ctrl+shift+C
- on the vm you want to copy to
ctrl+shift+V → ctrl+V
is this what you are following to copy and paste?
Yes, exactly. And it works as expected on Linux qubes.
this problem must have something to do with qwt
i saw you also post in this thread
are you using qubes 4.1?
Yes. Not sure if similar problem existed in 4.0, but I vaguely remember that something was wrong there with the clipboard, too
Apparently my QWT installation is broken :-/ And I am not sure the .iso installed from rpm I built from github is ok. Is there a binary repo for cross-built QWT? upd: i see, there is a link in 4.1 thread. will try it now if it fixes anything.
Did you set
qvm-prefs <VMname> default_user <your_username_in_ W10>? If not, the clipboard is copied to
Yep, I did everything using the qvm-create-windows-qube script, so the user is set.
Resolved! Indeed the problem was in QWT, namely the compatibility issue with newer QWT and qvm-create-windows-qube script.
I have this issue with my VMs in 4.0.4. I also used the qvm-create-windows-qube script. Often, pasting into the windows VM works most of the time. Copying out of a windows session is less reliable. It works 25% of the time. Sometimes copying and pasting into windows notepad and then cutting out of the windows vm (ctrl+x) will work but not often enough that its a reliable workaround. I have created multiple windows 10 enterprise and ltsc issue persists across all of them.
However, my biggest issue is in all my VMs I have created from scratch - none of the clocks stay in sync. None will sync with the timeserver and manually setting won’t work for long they will always lose sync.
