I have followed http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Tightvnc but clipboard does not work, I cannot copy and paste from client-server. Please advice.

Good question. You'll note that I left a section for this on the wiki, but someone has yet to complete it: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Tig … Clipboards
I had the same problem.
Its working now, running autocutsel -fork on the vncserver machine and autocutsel -fork on the vncviewer
In fact I dont know if it is necessary to run it in the viewer machine, because I already had it there.
Both computers are Arch, with tightvnc 1.3.10-5.
@mektub - you run this in ~/.vnc/xstartup or just run it in any shell prior to connecting?
Since I have had my VNC session opened for ages, till now I just excecuted it from a terminal console.
Yes, I did put it in xstartup, but I didnt reboot yet.
Cool, thanks. You wanna update the wiki article?
I will do it as soon as I restart the vncserver ( some time tomorrow) and check that it still works.
Thanks, I will try and see if it works.
It works! Thanks!! :D
Don't need to run autocutsel on client side. Here is my config.
#!/bin/sh export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1 autocutsel -fork exec ck-launch-session startlxde
