Description Jesse Glick 2012-09-14 17:33:27 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 20120910-ff527b142b87)
Operating System = Linux version 3.2.0-30-generic-pae running on i386
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_07
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 23.3-b01

Recently I have noticed that I cannot paste text into NetBeans; the IDE's clipboard just seems to contain whatever I last copied from the IDE, even if I have since copied some text in an external application. Copying from the IDE and pasting to an external application works.

Ubuntu, GNOME 3, JDK 7u7. Not sure if a regression in Java or NetBeans, but can copy from an external app and paste into SwingSet2 using 7u7.
