To enable clipboard sharing between tightvnc server and client,
First install autocutsel.
Now, you need to modify the file ~/.vnc/xstartup.
Add the following lines to it:
export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1 autocutsel -fork
The file finally looks like this:
#!/bin/sh xrdb $HOME/.Xresources xsetroot -solid grey export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1 autocutsel -fork /etc/X11/Xsession
You may need to install autocutsel
In Ubuntu (if that’s your client OS), you need an additional step in the client side. Press F8 in the vnc viewer, and choose Clipboard(Local->Remote).
