Summary0003139: spice-vdagent not sharing clipboard or resizing desktop
DescriptionIt appears to me that Kali reintroduced the bug here:

The spice-vdagent 0.15.0-1.1 was configured against console-kit instead of systemd.
0.15.0-1.2 resolved this issue, but the version installed in Kali is which again breaks the clipboard.

Downgrading to 0.15.0-1.2 fixed the issue.

Additional InformationI am running Archlinux as a host OS with libvirt and spice-gtk3 client.

That should be fixed with base-files 2017.2.1. I have added spice-vdagentd.service in the whitelist of services that can be enabled by default.

Please feel free to re-open if that doesn't work in the upcoming daily images:
