NAME

clipboard_to_primary - sync XA_CLIPBOARD to XA_SELECTION X11 buffers

SYNOPSIS

clipboard_to_primary [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

I rarely use any gui application, the exception being firefox with tridactyl. For some reason you can't paste from the PRIMARY buffer in firefox/tridactyl without using the mouse (and at times that doesn't work either). This solves this issue by syncing the CLIPBOARD buffer with the content of the PRIMARY selection so you can use Shift+Insert to paste in gui applications as well.

The clipboard buffer to use is **hardcoded** in the gtk source: "https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/178070/why-does-shiftinsert-paste-from-clipboard-in-some-applications-and-primary-in-o"

OPTIONS

-n,  --no-daemon  do not detach from the terminal
