I was using ten clips on Windows as a clipboard utility, and it had this nice feature that you could assign keyboard shortcut so that the text in the clipboard would be pasted but all lowercase. Is there a utility that could do that in Ubuntu? Is it possible to configure it?

  • Gedit has a "Change case" extension. You could paste into Gedit, select all, change case, then cut again. – wjandrea Oct 13 '16 at 14:17

That sounds useful... I do that very untidily like this...

Paste the text into a terminal (making sure it doesn't have any destructive commands or end with a new line.)

Press ctrl+a to go to the start
Press alt+l repeatedly or hold it down to lowercase each word. Copy the text to the clipboard...
