I have Debian 10 with KDE. Everything was working fine and suddenly today when I tried to copy a screenshot it didn't work. When I press the printscreen key, I get the popup showing the screenshot with the "copy to clipboard" button like normal, but when I try to paste it into GIMP or another image program I get:
"There is no image data in the clipboard to paste."
I tried to "restart" the clipboard by:
right-click on the system tray
click apply (clipboard goes away)
This had no effect.
I am able to copy & paste text using ctrl-c/ctrl-v, but the text doesn't show up in the clipboard in the system tray. The images don't show up there either.
I discovered that in konsole if I highlight text and middle-click, it does NOT copy the highlighted text. So the clipboard is really messed up, but I can't figure out any way to reset it.
and restarting KDE did NOT fix it.
I have this issue with the clipboard every 2 or 3 months. I can fix it by restarting the computer, but I would prefer to find a better way to fix it.
Is there some other way I can force the clipboard to restart or some way to fix this? Thanks.
