    Cannot paste in Gnome Boxes

    I have Fedora Server (console) running in a Gnome Boxes session with spice-vdagent installed but cannot paste text into the session. I've tried both Control V and Control Shift V. In the session Properties "Share Clipboard" is enabled but there is also a message at the bottom of that screen stating that Spice Guest Tools are not installed.

    Is there any package other than spice-vdagent I need to install? Is it not possible to paste into a console session?

    Re: Cannot paste in Gnome Boxes

    Of no help to you, but perhaps interesting: I run VirtualBox in CentOS 7. NEVER, despite the settings, has my clipboard sharing been of any use.
    Change - the only constant.
