Hi I have a Fedora 35 box, I am trying to setup autocutsel from
autocutsel, last release. According to the author, I should run
./configure then make
When I run ./Configure, I get a message as follows
checking for X… no
configure: error: Unable to find X libraries
How can this be fixed?

If you read the readme (
GitHub - sigmike/autocutsel: automated xcutsel), it tells you what to do when this error about X libraries occurs.
Not sure though, those packages are part of Fedora. Maybe they have a different name.
Probably the easiest is to go with the rpm that was built on copr:
sudo dnf copr enable shymega/autocutsel
sudo dnf install autocutsel

Thanks, I did run the dnf commands and it went trhough, however, still not able to copy/paste between windos host and fedora (I access fedora through RDP) So should I run something, I tried to run [autocutsel] on the command line, then try to copy/paste but it did not work

Are you running in an X session or a Wayland session? Maybe login using Gnome on Xorg option.
