I occasionally clobber whatever I had already copied to the clipboard. It would rock to just be able to keep all of my clipboard history right in front of me.

I use parcellite.

You can install it from Ubuntu repository by doing this command in terminal:

sudo apt-get install parcellite

Try Glipper, in the repositories. I'm assuming you use Gnome.

Nope, kubuntu. But I am also interested in venturing out into the nether-realms of WMs like Ion3... –  ixtmixilix Sep 27 '10 at 13:45

It looks impressive, but I chose parcellite because I'm partial to minimalistic implementations of a single idea. flpsed is another indispensably lightweight program I use (for example). I'd almost always choose these versions over the more full-featured ones. Glipper looks nice though, and I'm sure it's not a bad tool. But if you're editing 5 text files at a time and browsing with 20 tabs open and logged in at 3 terminals, it helps to use stuff that's built from a relatively small number pieces. –  ixtmixilix Sep 27 '10 at 14:08
    
Very good point. I wasn't sure what desktop you were running, and Glipper is more suited for Gnome. Glad you found something that works! –  gamerchick02 Sep 29 '10 at 22:24

There is also Klipper for KDE users.

I use klipper with gnome. I can't find a real alternative for klipper in gnome. Nothing more to say simply superb. –  aneeshep Nov 16 '10 at 12:57

I would recommend glippy if you want a clipboard manager that also supports images that were copied.

Thanks for the tip. Glippy and Glipper definitely has impressive features. I went with Parcellite in the end because I'm a pretty minimalistic guy, as far as computers go, and don't require image pasting (yet). –  ixtmixilix Sep 27 '10 at 14:03

Cairo-Dock have an applet for doing that out of the box.
