Anyone has any tool, other than a pen and pencil to help me manage more than 5 "copy-pastes"? I heard of Glipper, but anymore, with a small description and pros/cons would be appreciated.

Glipper - Klipper's Brother... for GTK. It has a limited amount of entries (MAX 99 Vs Klipper with 1024) but has nice features like sync different Glippers in the network, smart detection for similar clipboard copies and others. After a couple of versions ago, Glipper is GONE!. What you can do in Ubuntu 18.04+ is install the Gnome Extension Clipboard Indicator here https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/779/clipboard-indicator/
Parcellite - Small clipboard manager. Very nice and simple.
Synergy - You can share clipboard over Network (Including Mouse and Keyboard)
xfce4-clipman / xfce4-clipman-plugin - Klipper's Smaller Brother.. for xfce.
sudo apt-get install glipper sudo apt-get install parcellite sudo apt-get install synergy sudo apt-get install xfce4-clipman
Install by using the PPA via Terminal:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:diodon-team/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install diodon diodon-plugins
I recommend Pastie.
Install it by -
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hel-sheep/pastie sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pastie
CopyQ is a clipboard manager written in Qt that comes with some advanced features, image support, editable history, command line support, keyboard shortcuts and more.
Also, since the application is written in Qt, the tray icon/menu is automatically converted to an AppIndicator so you can use CopyQ in Unity without having to whitelist it to be able to use the notification area. If you don't get an AppIndicator for CopyQ, install the "sni-qt" package.
Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 and 12.04 users can install CopyQ by using the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:samrog131/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install copyq
Since the above PPA has quite a few packages which might not be stable, I suggest you remove the PPA after installing CopyQ:
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:samrog131/ppa
It's in the Ubuntu repo:
sudo apt-get install parcellite
Parcellite is a stripped down, basic-features-only clipboard manager with a small memory footprint for those who like simplicity.
Parcellite now supports unity, and there's a ppa for the latest releases. There are two ppas - one that supports Unity and one that does not (for older distros or minimal systems). The Unity ppa is https://launchpad.net/~rickyrockrat/+archive/parcellite-appindicator
The NON-Unity ppa is https://launchpad.net/~rickyrockrat/+archive/parcellite
The latest code is: http://parcellite.sourceforge.net
