Spice has no clipboard function, making it hard to paste commands into my vm's

Is there a way to get around this? LIke re adding the ability to use novnc or to somehow paste stuff in spice?
Details: Dragonfish- and google chrome latest version

You cannot get novnc back. As far as how to get around it, use a spice client program, similar in idea to a vnc client program. There are several depending on your platform. Or, install vnc or rdp in your VM, and then use appropriate client.

If you want to use Spice in the browser, use shift-control-c and shift-control-v
