Several sites have started disabling paste in input fields, mostly password fields, but also other fields for no apparent reason.
Random links on the topic:
This said, I am normally uneasy about copy-pasting passwords, as any X window can sniff the clipboard contents at any time, and I like password managers like impass that would type it for you instead of copying it to the clipboard.
However, today I got out way more frustrated than I could handle after illing in 17-digits nonsensical, always-slightly-different INPS payment codelines inside input fields that disabled paste for no reason whatsoever (they are not secret).
I thought "never again", I put together some code from impass and wmctrl and created xtypeinto:
$ ./xtypeinto --help usage: xtypeinto [-h] [--verbose] [--debug] [string] Type text into a window positional arguments: string string to type (default: stdin) optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --verbose, -v verbose output --debug debug output
Pass a string to
xtypeinto as an argument, or as standard input.
xtypeinto will show a crosshair to pick a window, and the text will be typed
into that window.
Please make sure that you focus on the right field before running
to make sure things are typed where you need them.
