Does Solaris have an actual system clipboard? If the system clipboard is not available, usually an IllegalStateException is thrown when retrieving the clipboard. However, the implementation behind the copy() method catches that IllegalStateException, then calls UIManager.getLookAndFeel().provideErrorFeedback(c). If that call does nothing, then indeed nothing will happen at all.
