Hello all,

Will someone please tell me how to get cut and paste working between Emacs and 
other applications?  I am using emacs 21.1 on Linux 2.4.2-2 with Gnome.  
Copying and pasting between emacs and other applications such only works maybe 
1 out of 5 times.  Is there some kind of problem with simply having emacs 
linked to the clipboard so that it can be used like any other normal 

For example:  I am reading my mail in emacs, and I want to paste a URL into 
Netscape.  I do the normal 'M-w' on the region containing the URL, go to 
netscape, and do "paste" and some source code from who knows where gets pasted 
in there!

Is there a way to get emacs up to speed with the rest of the computing universe 
with regard to cut-and-paste?  If anyone can help with this, please respond; it 
would be much appreciated because it's driving me nuts having to fire up gedit 
every time I want to transfer some text between an emacs buffer and some other
