    Copy/Pasting URLs in Linux doesn't work

    In Linux copy/pasting URLs for custom content doesn't work. Ctrl+V doesn't do anything in an input field for a URL.

    Having to manually type URLs quite sucks, plus is quite buggy as it appears all the normal key shortcuts are triggered even when typing in a form field.

    This is crazy annoying and makes modding take much longer :|

    You can't even "Backspace" if you mis-type something because it closes the dialog box!

    Well the reason is, they're not using the same „selection buffer” as others are.
    You can (if you use chrome to copy urls.) paste stuff in gedit, roxterm, or any other linux app and copy them again.
    Then you can use paste within Tabletop. That is a known problem with some applications. I'm not sure if it's Berserk's fault but yes it is indeed annoying.

    Main problem is that, whatever they are using it might not be compatible with implementations in other applications.

    I would suggest implementing
    a) primary: selection -> paste (middle mouse button) < most linux users use this to quickly copy-paste stuff.
    b) clipboard: The ctrl+c,v clipboard selection.
    This should allow like 90% of Linux users to easily copy-paste stuff into Tabletop Simulator.

    Well to give the developers some more information:
    > https://www.jwz.org/doc/x-cut-and-paste.html

    This document has some more information on how this should work.
    And if you're done test it with chrome/chromium (chrome's copy-paste behaviour is ****ed up).
