Are you talking about X11 emacs, or emacs in a terminal?
I have this in my ~/.emacs file on both Linux and Cygwin:
(setq x-select-enable-clipboard t)
I see in the news file that it's now set by default.
It has always worked in graphical emacs but has never
worked in a terminal on either Linux or Cygwin.
But I sure would like it to work in a terminal. Are you
able to paste clipboard text in emacs in a terminal?
