You shouldn't do that! By this means everything you kill in GNU Emacs is put into the X clipboard and another copy is put into the primary selection. This is pollution.

(setq interprogram-paste-function 'x-cut-buffer-or-selection-value)

Any suggestions?

Deliberately copy something into the clipboard that this gets shared among all X clients! Most of what you kill is obviously scrap, otherwise you wouldn't kill it, would you? Besides there are in GNU Emacs functions like clipboard-kill-region or clipboard-kill-ring-save. And check mouse-insert-selection! This is what I use to import something into GNU Emacs. And what about x-get-selection/x-get-cut-buffer?
