Hi all, I’m trying to resolve issues that came up sometime during the past 2 weeks. Its been a personally hectic time but I vaguely recall doing both kernel and plasma updates. Both issues seem unrelated but they showed up simultaneously so I’m not so sure.
Operating System: Fedora Linux 37
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.2
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.103.0
Qt Version: 5.15.8
Kernel Version: 6.1.14-200.fc37.x86_64 (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: Wayland
Processors: 8 × 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i3-12XXX
Memory: 16 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30XX/PCIe/SSE2
Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
Product Name: B660M DS3H DDR4
NVidia Driver Version: 520.56.06
Edit: WORKAROUND FOUND
Bug occurs with combination of “MaxClipItems=1” and “NoEmptyClipboard=false” settings. If I remove either one, the issue stops happening
Source: 417590 – With MaxClipItems=1 NoEmptyClipboard=false, the second time you copy text after emptying the clipboard, you need to invoke "copy" twice
(For KDE Plasma, thats “History Size” under “Configure Clipboard”)
Paste is simply not working. Neither ctrl-v nor pasting from any context menu works.
Cut and Copy works as expected - text is removed as expected and texts show up on the Clipboard. I just somehow cannot paste it.
Somehow copying twice (sometimes thrice) resolves the issue and I can Paste as expected.
This issue has occurred in my browser, text editor and spreadsheets so I don’t think its application specific.
Cannot Log Out or Suspend
My system now hangs every time I log out (screen shows “Fedora” with a spinning circle). No alerts or error messages show on screen.
I’ve actually had issues with Suspend for around 3 months as this point, but logging out then suspending worked, so that was my workaround. Now that logging out is no longer working, and that restarting seemed like the only way to recover, I’m forced to do the full boot sequence each time.
For Suspend, things are more complex. If I suspend when logged in, it works like 25% of the time. If I suspend when logged out, it works all the time.
When I first switched to Fedora about 9 months ago, suspend did not work. I later found out that disabling “IOAPIC 24-119” was a possible solution and that worked for me. Around Dec 22, Suspend starting giving me issues.
I’m quite new to Fedora and Linux in general, especially in the troubleshooting department. Some sort of error log or trace is probably needed, I will need step by step guidance on how to get those. I’m okay with CLI but will prefer GUI options where possible. Thanks in advance for your time.
