Description masavini 2015-03-16 00:39:30 UTC
i open the editor, no matter what kind of file.

in the terminal, i run this command:

sleep 3; echo bubu | xsel -ib; xdotool key Ctrl+v

then i quickly focus on netbeans.

the string "bubu" does not get pasted (it does on any other X application). furthermore, after running that command i'm not able anymore to copy-paste from system to netbeans.

netbeans "internal" copy-paste still works.

even simplier:

write anywhere any string, then copy it in the clipboard (let's say "gaga").

in the terminal run this command:
echo bubu | xsel -ib

then switch to netbeans and if ctrl+v is pressed the string "gaga" gets pasted, not "bubu".

after that xsel command copy-paste from system to netbeans won't work anymore...

another test:

installed ubuntu 14.04.02 LTS on a virtualbox virtual machine.
run sudo apt-get install netbeans xsel
launched netbeans
run echo bubu | xsel -ib on the terminal
pressed ctrl+v in netbeans: nothing happens
