An easy to use clipboard manager made using tkinter.
Note: Currently, clix works only on Linux systems.
To install clix, simply,
$ pip install clix
If you get
ImportErrorfor Xlib module, install it using this command:
$ sudo apt-get install python-xlib
To run clix, open terminal and run this command:
if error shown try:
$ sudo clix
On Mac OSX, one of the following must be true:
-The process must run as root. -Your application must be white listed under Enable access for assistive devices. Note that this might require that you package your application, since otherwise the entire Python installation must be white listed.
Note: Leave this terminal open as long as you want to use clix.
Another alternative is to use this command:
$ nohup clix &
Now, you can close the terminal but clix will keep running.
To close clix, open a terminal and simply run:
$ pkill clix
Press Ctrl + space keys to open clix GUI. And Ctrl + space again to close it. Initially, all clip frames are empty.
Now, as you copy any text, (using Ctrl + c keys), the text is saved to topmost frame of clix clipboard.
Whenever you want to paste any clip, just open clix GUI (usin Ctrl + space keys) and click on clip it button to copy clip text to main clipboard.
Now, simply pressing Ctrl + v keys will paste the desired clip text!
