Getting Cut & Paste to work in VNC

Sometimes the ability to use cut and paste stops working between your VNC session and the your computer. To get cut and paste to work again just run the following command on the terminal. 

root@earth> vncconfig &

The vncconfig command lunches the vncconfig utility which controls the clipboard function needed for cut & paste to work. Just make sure all the check boxes are checked when the vncconfig utility comes up and cut & paste should start working again.
