    Default Cannot Paste Code Text In New Document File On BT5 r2

    Hi everyone Noob here having fun exploring the limits of my knowledge of BT5. Anyway in trying to paste text from my laptop's clipboard into a newly created document file on BT5 I notice the paste,copy cut etc commands are greyed out. Hmm so am not able to paste in the code. I guess I am doing something pretty silly and obvious here but have not worked it out. Someone kindly come to the rescue with a solution? Thanks. Doc Strange

    Are you running Backtrack inside a Virtual Machine ?

    Yes I am.

    So I have on my BT5/VM enabled 'Bidirectional' for 'Shared Clipboard' & 'Drag & Drop' BUT still not able to copy/drag from Windows 7 into BT5

    Next I updated/installed guest additions by typing in my terminal sudo aptitude install virtualbox-guest-additions

    That also did not enable me to copy/paste into BT5

    Regards, Doc Strange

    I 'm affraid it is not possible, you might want to create a shared folder and use it that way....I've read and try the same thing as you, but no luck..But using a shared folder, is a good option...

    Hmmm, why then does Virtual Box/BT5 have the function of 'Bidirectional' for 'Shared Clipboard' & 'Drag & Drop'? Surely it must be able to work? Otherwise why include that option? Also i have seen videos showing fokls copying & pasting slowloris code into BT5. Doc Strange

    I invite you to read the Oracle's Virtual Box website and forums, and see if you find a solution.

    Luck.
