Made a mistake while typing. I noticed since upgrade to gtk 3.22.13-1, I cannot get any paste to work in pluma from Chromium or Firefox

I had to downgrade to gtk3 3.22.12+6+g42aa4c138c-1 in order to get a working paste again. I also noticed copying URL from Chromium / Firefox into LibreOffice doesn't work either.

Weird bug :(

I can also confirm this issue with Chromium. I am currently building gtk3 without commit 7d9450fb60b03dcead85a462f30f24e60119c520.

I also confirm. Generally all GTK3 applications are affected. I can't paste into any gtk3 based app.

Confirm. I can't paste text to xfce4-terminal marked only by mouse in Firefox or Opera. I've tested it with downgraded vte3 vte-common, but with no results, thus think it's also Gtk3 issue.

Pasting works in Mousepad.

reverting 7d9450fb60b03dcead85a462f30f24e60119c520 fixes the issue for me
change the prepare function of the gtk3 PKGBUILD to
prepare() {
mkdir print-backends
cd gtk+
git revert -n 7d9450fb60b03dcead85a462f30f24e60119c520

I'm using stock MATE desktop, and can confirm that simple cut & paste between mate-terminal and pluma was affected; simply downgrading the gtk3 packages from gtk3-3.22.13-1 to gtk3-3.22.12+6+g42aa4c138c-1 restores the cut & paste behaviour correctly. It does affect interoperation with a lot of other apps but can confirm an "out of the box MATE" using only MATE native apps was broken and it was specifically this package upgrade. Hope this helps!

Same here, after upgrading to gtk 3.22.13-1 applications with GTK3 clipboard no longer works correctly, on GTK2 applications clipboards have no issues.
I'm on XFCE Firefox, Termite even KeePass (mono) have issues with clipboard, secondary clipboard works on some text fields.
Downgrading to gtk3-3.22.12+6+g42aa4c138c-1 solved the problem.

a3178fd665f48cbaffae477c3b7ab1e2301e3c2d is the commit on the gtk-3-22 branch setting _commit in the PKGBUILD to that resolves the issue.

It works between native Gnome apps, could this be a Xwayland issue?
