The clipboard on Linux is implemented using X11 selections. See
http://freedesktop.org/Standards/ClipboardsWiki. If you look at the Qt
source code you can find a working example in qclipboard_x11.cpp.
The REBOL clipboard still seems to be broken on Linux. Using rebview1247042 I
can copy from X to REBOL, but not the other way around.
