Longstanding Clipboard Issues

Hi,
Firstly, apologies if this has been mentioned many times before.

For as long as i've used linux and the X windowing system, this has always been a problem - when you close an X application,any data which it put on the clipboard is lost. This is really irritating as i'm sure people will agree

One of the forum posts [url]http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … =clipboard [/url] mentioned a clipboard daemon for gnome which can be used but i couldn't get it to compile. I also read that a daemon is a less than perfect solution for the clipboard problem.

Does anyone know the best solution for this problem or anything about the whole clipboard issue? its been a long standing problem so i assume it must be a real pig to fix.I'm quite curious - is the clipboard managed by X or the window manager? Any suggestions/info/anything else would be much appreciated smile

Cheers

Dan

Re: Longstanding Clipboard Issues

In your situation I'd suggest Glipper.
It works with most desktop environments.

Kickass! I didn't know there was a decent alternative to Klipper!

If you use xfce, there is also a clipman plugin for the 4.4 panel that does the same job. Just FYI smile
