Aiming to be the best integrated clipboard manager for the Unity desktop.
For Ubuntu based distributes there is an official stable PPA.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diodon-team/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y diodon
To install Diodon on other systems download a release tarball from launchpad.
Diodon uses the Meson build system.
git clone https://github.com/diodon-dev/diodon.git && cd diodon meson builddir && cd builddir ninja ninja test sudo ninja install # only needed after the first ninja install sudo ldconfig
The unity scope needs to be explicitly enabled if you want to build it
meson configure -Denable-unity-scope=true
On distributions which do not provide packages for application-indicator building of the indicator can be disabled by adjusting builddir creation command:
meson builddir -Ddisable-indicator-plugin=true && cd builddir
For uninstalling type this:
sudo ninja uninstall
If you would like to write your own Diodon plugin please refer to the original blog post. Feel free to add your own plugins to the list below.

|Paste All||Paste all recent items at once|

Store clipoard items in memory
Diodon uses Zeitgeist to store clipboard items. Per default Zeitgeist persists all events in a database on the hard disc so it is available after a reboot. If you want to store it to memory you need to set environment variable
:memory: with a command like the following (might differ depending on your setup):
echo "ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_PATH=:memory:" >> ~/.pam_environment
