Issue Report: can't paste in Steam Overlay
I have content copied to the clipboard (from a regular Steam chat window), but I can't paste it into the Steam Chat window I have open inside the Steam Overlay while playing TF2. Not when pressing ctrl+V, and not when doing right-click > Paste. I am 100% sure that the content is in the clip board.

This worked for me using Ubuntu/Unity but I will add your report to the bug database. Thanks for specifying the distro/DE.

This works for me. I'm running xfce. Can you check if it's still not working for you?
