I just updated my Fedora 33 to Fedora 34. I first made a copy of 33 then did the upgrade on the copied VM. I noticed that on the Fedora 34 version, the Copy/Paste from the host (Windows 10 Pro) no longer works. I went back to the original Fedora 33 VM and the host copy/paste works fine in that VM. I also tried host Copy/Paste with RHEL 8 and it works fine also. Therefore my thought is this is a Fedora 34 issue. Has anyone else seen this and if so is there a fix?
I'm having the same problem with Fedora 34; copy-and-paste isn't working between a Windows 10 host and the VM. File drag-and-drop between the Windows 10 host and the F34 VM is also not working.
FWIW: I'm using the KDE/Plasma spin of F34, and I've tried both the Wayland and X11 login options. (I typically use the X11 login option.)
Have you figured out a solution to this problem?
It seems this is a known bug in Fedora 34 with the KDE/Plasma spin:
As of today, the workarounds that seem to work are these:
* edit /etc/xdg/startkderc, set systemdBoot=false
* log out * when logging in to plasma, choose x11 session type (instead of wayland)
Either of these two methods ensures the logged-in user has the required vmtoolsd process:
$ ps aux | grep vmtoolsd
