How do I get cut-n-paste to work correctly with CDE? Updated: 04/22/03

Text cut-n-paste (with the mouse buttons) does not work correctly between
applications under HP-UX 10.x CDE, as delivered by HP. To fix this,
set the 'enableBtn1Transfer' resource to 'False' as follows:

o [ ! -f /etc/dt/config/C/sys.resources ] && \
cp /usr/dt/config/C/sys.resources to /etc/dt/config/C/sys.resources
o Edit /etc/dt/config/C/sys.resources, and find the resource:
*enableBtn1Transfer: button2_transfer
o Change the resource value from "button2_transfer" to "False"
!*enableBtn1Transfer: button2_transfer
*enableBtn1Transfer: False
o Save /etc/dt/config/C/sys.resources and re-log into CDE.

For 10.20, installing the latest CDE Runtime patch will fix the problem:

o 10.20: patch PHSS_27877
