Copy and paste does not work

Postby fnatter » 5. Mar 2020, 19:36

hello virtualbox community,

I activated bidirectional clipboard support, but it does not work.

Host: Debian buster (10) with virtualbox 6.1.4:
ii virtualbox-6.1 6.1.4-136177~Debian~buster amd64 Orac

Guest: Debian unstable (just updated) with guest additions 6.1.4:
ii virtualbox-guest-dkms 6.1.4-dfsg-1 all x86 virtualization solution - guest addition module source for dkms
un virtualbox-guest-modules <none> <none> (no description available)
un virtualbox-guest-source <none> <none> (no description available)
ii virtualbox-guest-utils 6.1.4-dfsg-1 amd64 x86 virtualization solution - non-X11 guest utilities
ii virtualbox-guest-x11 6.1.4-dfsg-1 amd64 x86 virtualization solution - X11 guest utilities

I have attached the vbox log, but couldn't find related errors in there.
Does anybody have a hint?

Many Thanks,
Felix
