Hi,

i have a little problem because copy and paste doesn't work for me.

I use RDP in windows 7 64bit ( default remote ) for my raspbian ( sudo apt-get install xrdp)

but copy and paste from windows to raspbian and viceversa doesn't work

Please someone can help me about that?

I read a lot of stuff without success.

You are correct C&P does not work with RDP.
As an alternative I found that C&P does work from a SSH connection using PuTTy.

From RPi to Windows: Select text with mouse left button hold and drag (press no other keys). Then on the Windows side use Paste menu or CTRL-V
From Windows to RPi: Copy text then on the RPi put cursor at insertion point. Be sure to place cursor with arrow keys and NOT mouse! Then right click the mouse.

Did you do this using SSH connection instead of RDP?

Install PuTTY on your Windows computer. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
A tutorial from my web site: http://www.blackeagle12.net/Comp/RPi/SSH.html

Excuse me, but how can PuTTY be the answer to this question? It is a very tedious workaround. After all, we use RDP to see a graphical user interface, not a text console, right? So please, is anyone else interested in a real solution? PuTTY is a great tool but has nothing to do with RDP.
Can anyone explain why Copy&Paste does not work? How can you be satisfied with the PuTTY workaround?

I don't understand. It looks like I can do C&P between my Windows and my LinuxMint via RDP. And it's xrdp on Mint too. Is that due to different versions of xrdp?
