Text copied in Atom cannot be pasted into other applications.
I select the text I want to copy, and press Ctrl-C (the default key binding). The Key Binding Resolver shows this:
✓ core:copy body /usr/share/atom/resources/app/keymaps/linux.json × native! body .native-key-bindings /usr/share/atom/resources/app/keymaps/linux.json
So is the problem that Atom has replaced the OS native copy/pasting functionality? Is this a bug, or a “feature”?
I am able to copy/paste as normal when it’s all within Atom – copying from a document in Atom and pasting elsewhere in the same document, or in another file opened with Atom. I can even copy text from other applications and paste in Atom (usually – sometimes it doesn’t work either). But trying to paste in gedit and Firefox does nothing. Actually, trying to paste test from Atom into Krita, a KDE painting app, actually causes Krita to crash.
I’m using Atom 0.189 on Ubuntu 14.04 x64. I have several Atom packages installed – some syntax highlighters, sort-lines, and Emmet, with only minimal changes to the keymaps and user stylesheet – but this is a problem for me even with Atom running in “safe mode,” with community packages disabled.
