[pve-devel] [PATCH qemu-server v4 1/5] enable clipboard parameter in vga_fmt

Markus Frank m.frank at proxmox.com
Tue Mar 14 12:09:38 CET 2023


added option to use the qemu vdagent implementation to enable the noVNC
clipboard. When enabled with SPICE the spice-vdagent gets replaced with the qemu
implementation.

This patch does not solve #1406, but does allow copy and paste with
a running X-session, when spice-vdagent is installed on the guest.

added clipboard variable to return at status/current

By that noVNC is able to check if clipboard is active.
