"Copy to clipboard" functionality

Hi. I noticed that the functionality in question topic doesn't work for me. I am running Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE 3.5.x. When I click on the "Copy..." button, I get a popup saying it is now in my clipboard. However, Klipper (the clipboard application in KDE) doesn't have this message.
So, is this functionality only working on Windows systems? It's fine if it does, I just wanted to note this. Other buttons work correctly.
Cheers.

Raf,
Where do you see a copy button? I haven't noticed this functionality in our software.

I looked at the FAQ, and at the Rules Roundup game, thinking perhaps he meant one of those. I can't find any such button. URL, please?

In the little menu that's being shown above CODE sections by the JavaScript highlighter.

Yup, Ulf has it right, that's the one. Sorry for not being specific enough.

A lot of browsers have this feature disabled in its options, you would have to enable it to work. I am not sure what this forum uses.
