GPaste is a clipboard management system. See for more information about what clipboard managers are.

A library is available for development purposes:

  • libgpaste contains all the basic objects used by GPaste and allows you to manage preferences and the GPaste daemon.

A default daemon named gpaste-daemon is provided, with seven keybindings:

  • show history
  • pop the item from the history
  • sync primary selection with clipboard
  • sync clipboard with primary selection
  • mark the active item as being a password
  • upload the active item to a pastebin service (using wgetpaste)
  • launch the graphical tool

A simple CLI interface is provided: gpaste, with two subcommands: gpaste settings which makes the preferences utility pop, gpaste applet which starts the status icon in your notification area and gpaste app-indicator which starts the unity application indicator.

A native gnome-shell extension is provided.

/!\ Don't forget to run gpaste dr aka gpaste daemon-reexec after upgrading GPaste to activate new functionalities ;)

You can then run gpaste daemon-version to check the correct daemon is now running.

Steps to install it after cloning (skip the ./ part if you're building it from a tarball):

./configure --sysconfdir=/etc
sudo make install
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

If you also want to build the status icon, you'll have to pass --enable-applet to configure.

If you also want to build the unity application indicator, you'll have to pass --enable-unity to configure.

You can see everything I'll post about GPaste there.

Latest release for GNOME 3.16 is: GPaste
