If you are talking about a TextBuffer Widget, you have to instance your

static Clipboard  clipboard;
clipboard = Gtk.Clipboard.Get (Atom.Intern("CLIPBOARD", false));

and in the following code buffer stands for a TextBuffer instance.

		public void  OnPaste (object o, EventArgs args) 
			buffer.PasteClipboard (clipboard);

		public void  OnCopy (object o, EventArgs args) 
			buffer.CopyClipboard (clipboard);

		public void  OnCut(object o, EventArgs args) 
			buffer.CutClipboard (clipboard, true);

Note : This only works with text, I don't think it works with anchors
(images, and other widgets).

			Have fun.
