I am looking for an application that saves all CTRL C history. Is there such a thing for Ubuntu, or Linux in general?

I remember seeing on of these, but I don't quite remember the details.

apt-cache search "clipboard manager"

Yields the following

clipit - lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager
glipper - Clipboard manager for GNOME
parcellite - lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager
klipper - clipboard manager

The last one is for KDE

    From my experience Parcellite is probably the easiest an most effective to use. – Marco Ceppi Sep 28 '11 at 19:14
  • I find clipit more suitable. Glipper likes to eat your memory, and parcellite is not even shown on Unity on my desktop. – Jorge Suárez de Lis Dec 8 '12 at 16:57

Parcellite version 1.1.4 supports unity. The ppa is here https://launchpad.net/~rickyrockrat/+archive/parcellite-appindicator and the latest code is here http://parcellite.sourceforge.net/

There are two builds of parcellite - one with the appindicator dependency and one without. The ppa WITHOUT unity support is https://launchpad.net/~rickyrockrat/+archive/parcellite

You can check Keepboard. It is written in Java and thus works on most distros.
