Coverity Scan Build Status

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

Translators can use weblate to contribute.

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-client, with a subcommands: gpaste-client ui which makes the graphical tool pop.

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:

mkdir builddir
cd builddir
meson ..
sudo ninja install
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

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

Latest release for GNOME 45 is: GPaste 45.
