I am using Emacs 23.3.1 and KDE 4.5.5 on Linux Slackware. When I select and copy some text in Emacs into the clipboard, using the hotkeys: C-c & Shift-<Ins> this text doesn't appear immidiately in KDE clipboard. But exists at the top of Klipper buffer. So I have to manually select this text and then it's available.
When I copy from the menu, everything works fine. How to learn, which functions called, when copying from the menu, so I could bind it to the hotkeys?
Ok, I found it. The function is called 'clipboard-kill-ring-save', while it
was bound to function: 'kill-ring-save'. But I can't reset C-c. It was
bound via cua-mode and the standard approach, using global-set-key doesn't
work. How to remap C-c to another function?
Me, I don't know! What you can do as well is, type C-h b. It will update the *Help* buffer and show you that some key bindings are stored in particular keymaps, that will have to use to change this or that key binding. With cua-mode on you see an even larger chaos. So, I prefer to stay a few light years away from cua-mode and continue to live happily together with GNU Emacs.
