Re: Problems with copy-paste/root terminal

here's a possible cause: a clipboard manager is not running on user's system, and after performing "copy", but before attempting to paste... ...user closes the app from which the text was copied. another (common, but unrelated to mouseclick) reason people think "copy/paste in terminal...

Re: Scr.Resolution chang.Can not see Desktop Enviroment.May.2 - 20.2017

Looks like what happened (no prompt responses) is that MXkulski's initial post was much too vague and although s/he probably realized that, and returned to post a lot of additional details, troubleshooting steps taken, etc... because it was an EDIT, the forum software didn't float the topic back to ...
