I am using fedora19.1 I am haing problems with the app that allows you to copy text and put it in gedit or similar word processor or text editor. I haven't found a app that works in fedora. Thanks for any help.

Uhhh...what? Meaning, when you copy something to your clipboard it is automatically pasted somewhere else? There are plenty of clipboard managers available. Just google it

If you highlight some text, it is 'copied'. If you then middle click, it pastes. This is separate from the right click or ctl+c copy and paste. You don't need an 'app' for any of this, it is built in by default.

I have that functionality in "xterm", but I don't know whether or not it's available in gnome
