GPaste is a clipboard management system. See http://www.imagination-land.org/posts/2012-12-01-gpaste-released.html for more information about what clipboard managers are.
A library is available for development purposes:
libgpastecontains 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-client, with three subcommands:
gpaste-client ui which makes the graphical
gpaste-client applet which starts the status icon in your notification area and
gpaste-client app-indicator which
starts the unity application indicator.
A native gnome-shell extension is provided.
/!\ Don't forget to run
gpaste-client dr aka
gpaste-client daemon-reexec after upgrading GPaste to activate new functionalities ;)
You can then run
gpaste-client daemon-version to check the correct daemon is now running.
Steps to install it after cloning (skip the
./autogen.sh part if you're building it from a tarball):
./autogen.sh ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc make 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 3.20 is: GPaste 3.20.4.
