Natively on the SUT:
from gnome-terminal: R-Click | copy, R-Click Paste (and -v) works fine.
From interactive Eggplant: setRemoteClipboard “hi there”, in the linux SUT in the connection window: -v and R-Click Paste both paste in the stuff I copied interactively on the SUT, not what I told Eggplant to put into the clipboard.
In the linux SUT from the connection window: Hilite some text in gnome-terminal, R-Click | copy. Back in the Run window of Interactive Eggplant: put remoteClipboard() yields “hi there”.
Seems to be a total lack of communication between the clipboard of the SUT and eggplant.
