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.
Some libraries are available for development purposes:
libgpaste-corecontains all the basic objects used by GPaste
libgpaste-settingsallows you to handle GPaste preferences over dconf
libgpaste-keybinderprovides functionalities to add custom keybindings to GPaste
libgpaste-daemonallows you to write your own GPaste daemon
libgpaste-clienthelps you integrate GPaste in your application
libgpaste-gnome-shell-clienthelps you integrate the gnome-shell dbus API in your application
libgpaste-appletallows you to write your own GPaste applet
A default daemon named
gpasted is provided, with four keybindings:
- show history
- pop the item from the history
- sync primary selection with clipboard
- sync clipboard with primary selection
A simple CLI interface is provided:
gpaste, with two subcommands:
gpaste settings which makes the preferences
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
./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 3.12 is: GPaste 3.12.
