I don’t know if I should be happy or just annoyed. I went to grab some log files for IBM support and the copy function is working now. The Linux OS did apply some updates this morning, so I’m not sure if that fixed the issue or what.

For reference I’m running:
VMware Workstation v15.5
CentOS 8
OpenJDK 1.8.0_232

Subject: Re: ACS 5250 emulator copy function not working on Linux

Steve, what VM is it?? Maybe it's more a function of the VM not allowing
it possibly.

Maybe something similar to this??

One function I use a lot in ACS is the Copy and Copy/Append function on
the 5250 emulator.
I’ve opened a PMR but wanted to see is anyone else is running ACS under
Linux and if this function works for them?

Works fine for me on Ubuntu.
