Hi,

Reading this page:
https://www.linux-kvm.org/page/SPICE
I gather that using spice, we should be able to copy and paste to (and 
from) a guest.

So, we installed on a stretch guest the spice-vdagent, and selected 
spice (qxl) as a display driver, plus we checked the Qemu Agent checkbox.

Then, viewing with the Virtual Machine Viewer from virt-manager.org 
works nicely, but still no copy and paste. In fact: the mouse becomes 
invisible in a guest stretch console window. (plus there is no edit 
menu, with copy and paste options)

Is there anything else we need to do? We would *so* much like to copy 
and paste to and frfom the guest.... :-)

Thanks!
MJ
