synchronize clipboards in opensuse 12.3

[scope]
Installed a Opensuse 12.3 with Lxde as a guest os in vmware player 6.0.2 within an Opensuse 13.1 Host.

[issue]
clipboard synchronization between the Host OS and the Guest OS is broken.

[Workarround]
It seems to be an issue of host system. Linux uses different primay and secondary clipboard manager, i need to synchronize them all with “autocutsel”. After installed autocutsel this problem seems to be solved.

[Solution]
It seems to be an host kernel based issue. The copy of the same guest os is working well on another host.
