Ctrl+c is not adding an entry to Klipper. Any resolution?

(Not sure why this is under KNotes?) You haven't said which distro or given any package version numbers, which might have helped. Could be related to - and it applied to both Ctrl-c and mouse selection. It was a qt bug that was resolved in qt-4.5, I believe.--annew 18:14, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
