I just download some Desktop Environment for my Kali Linux. Then at second usage (after reboot), I tried to copy MAC Address in terminal. But when I click Paste, the text can't even show in my screen. I've tried it with Right-Click and install Parcellite, but nothing happen. I tried too to go back to my preinstalled DE (Gnome), but also nothing worthy.

    Is Kali your first Gnu/Linux OS? Is it your main desktop OS? – ctrl-alt-delor Nov 8 '18 at 19:27
  • Yeah, the GRUB always automatically running Kali instead Windows 10. – Bagus Eka Saputra Nov 8 '18 at 22:58
  • Sorry I was miss-under stood. I am asking in Kali the first Gnu/Linux OS that you have used. I.E. have you used a different Gnu/Linux in the past, or is this your first. I am not asking about boot order. – ctrl-alt-delor Nov 9 '18 at 9:56
  • It means, yes.. Kali Linux is my main Desktop.. – Bagus Eka Saputra Nov 9 '18 at 11:46
  • Do not use Kali as a desktop OS. It is not made for such a use. You should use a desktop oriented OS such as Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint, MacOS, Windows 10 ... Anything but Kali which is more than a pain in the A... when you're a beginner. – Kiwy Nov 9 '18 at 14:57

Finally I fixed it myself. I just go arround the Wiki and found that XFCE desktop has occured some bugs, especially about Clipboard System. So I just remove XCFE desktop and Parcellite, then reboot my Desktop.
