I have installed Spice guest on Ubuntu server (sudo apt install spice-vdagent) and i am successfully connected with spice to my Ubuntu sever 22 vm. But copy/past will not work. I have spent over 2 hours searching for answers. in this thread Ask Ubuntu they talk in detail about the problem (i guess) but do i really have to edit some xml files? i have no idea what they are talking and is it really that hard?

on my windows vm, its working only with the guest tools, as expected

proxmox is 7.2.3
thank you!
