If I copy an URL stated with https from google-chrome and then i use "show qr code" option in clipper, i will show empty windows without code. It's funny because when I paste same link somewhere, it'll work fine. Links looks this same in klipper's history
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Copy/select URL of https website from chrome
2.Use Show Qr code option from klipper
3.Try this same after copying it from somewhere else or after editing it in klipper but don't changing anything
works fine for me, though when I copy something from Chrome it ends up with
two entries: one empty and one with the content. Ensure that the one is
content is the selected item.
klipper 0.9.7 ( packet manager say it's 4.11.11)
kde 4.13.3 with Polish layout
It happens only after I click "Enter key" to load a website. If I just type something in URL box, I can copy it and klipper will make nice working QR, but if the website is loaded, then klipper will show empty window.
It's weird that it's happening
Also, i upgraded klipper from Sabayon (Gentoo based distro) from klipper-4.11.10 to klipper-4.11.11 and now klipper shows empty window always when I copy URL with http OR https from URL box when its loaded.
PS: I I've 'non-working' URL in the clipboard and want to modife clipbord content inside of Klipper, i shows empty text box, but when I paste this URL to kwrite and copy it, both, QR code generation and clipboard editing works fine. Maybe there is some \0 character or something at the start of URL when it's whole copied...
PS 2: It's easy to get around, i just don'y copy whole URL addres, if I won't copy 'https://' part, it will work fine.
I'm relatively sure that this is a Chrome issue. They recently changed the toolkit from GTK to a custom one. That means the had to write the X11-clipboard interaction code themselves and that probably is buggy.
Yup, I thinks so too. Thanks for Your help and patient. I'm marking it as a resolved.

Overall if the chromium does not fix it maybe klipper side could be fixed?
If I kill klipper from plasma5 and use KDE4 variant, or just the X copy mechanisms it works fine, so people will in the end be rather blaming klipper because only it can't handle the thing.
Can we not have something that ignores empty strings like one of the two strings sent to Klipper by Chrome, if that is the case?
When I paste things copied from Chrome to KWrite using middle click, it doesn't paste two separate lines.
