I use Arch Linux (4.10.13-1-ARCH). Xfce environment. Several days ago I assumed that clipboard stops working from/to Google Chrome, Onlyoffice, Okular, Gimp. It still working in a way like: Termianl <-> Mousepad, Terminal <-> Terminal, Mousepad <-> Mousepad, and, what is more strange: Google Chrome <-> Google Chrome, Onlyoffice <-> Onlyoffice, etc. I tried different ways of copy-pasting: Ctrl+C/V, Ctrl/Shift+Insert, right click + copy/paste but nothing works.

This was a bug in gtk3 but is fixed already. If you update your system, and restart, the clipboard works again.
