I'm looking for a program that saves the recent clipboard items (plain text would be enough) for Ubuntu 14.04.

Thanks for any help !

    Glipper is a popular choice. – mikewhatever Feb 10 '15 at 23:40
  • Glipper works fine. Do you want to post it as an answer? – jeff Feb 11 '15 at 0:22

Glipper is a clipboard manager, it can be installed from the Software Center.

I use ClipIt is a Parcelite fork with Ubuntu menu integration.

sudo apt-get install clipit

It works on both, GNOME 3 and Unity.

You can try Keepboard. It is easy to use and seems to be stable and reliable.

  • If you do decide to go with Keepboard then download the zip, extract it to its own folder, and make start.sh executable. Once you do that, it's easy to run and once you have it running you can make it run at startup with a simple checkbox in the preferences. – KGIII Oct 20 '15 at 8:49

I'm using GPaste:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-gpaste

    doesn't seem to work anymore. Gnome, xfce, xUbuntu 14.04, April 2016. – phil294 Apr 7 '16 at 21:21
  • It worked for me on Ubuntu 18.04. You need to know the keyboard shortcuts though: Ubuntu > Settings > Devices > Keyboard > GPaste – DJDaveMark Jun 14 '18 at 12:46

CopyQ is awesome advanced Linux clipboard manager. It has tons of valuable features.

Install:

$ sudo apt install copyq

And add global shortcut:

Tray icon > Preferences > Shortcuts Tab > Custom Actions and Global Shortcuts.. > Add > Show/hide main window

    Seems interesting. Unfortunately, it is not on 16.04 repositories, as I though on a first glance. On the web site, 18.04+ is mentioned, but anyway I can't add 'cause its repository is blocked by my company's policies. Might be worth adding that you need to add repositories to your system to get it. – Charles Roberto Canato Feb 27 '18 at 19:27
  • This question about 14.04 LTS message caused a similar question about 16.04 LTS to be flagged as duplicate of it: askubuntu.com/questions/850209/… There are other answers there, too. – SDsolar Jun 4 '18 at 14:35

Diodon is another good option available for both GTK and Unity. Works pretty much like the others in the answers already given. However, you can search your recent 'clips' using Dash.

As at this posting, it supports up to 15.04 - the latest version.

Install it with the follow

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diodon-team/stable

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install diodon

If you need the Dash functionality, you'll need a plugin for that.

sudo apt-get install unity-scope-diodon

Then use Super + b to get the Dash scope.

I use Clippy, a docklet that works with Plank (I don't use Unity). I think Clippy also comes with Docky.
