    A clipboard manager that works ... FOR ME

    I cut and paste a lot. But far and away most of them are one shot. There are none too many I would like saved forever.

    Consequently I have been trying to find a clipboard manager that I can selectively save stuff to OR allows me to delete the ones I don't want.

    I have found neither. They save everything. Or they clear everything.

    Does anyone know of a utility that would do what I want?

    TIA

    Try glipper, has a snippets plugin and you can also set number of items kept in history.
    The history has to be set to at least 1 for the snippets to show.

    I had tried glipper (and klipper and parcellite ...) before ... but I did not use/try the plug-in.

    I think you are saying I should use glipper to collect "everything" and then us the plug-in to cull them. If so, I can do that. Could make for a lot of maintenance though ...

    And not nearly as good as hitting, oh I don't know, F12, to tell the manager "keep this one for me please".

    Thanks for your response

    Pastie has an edit function, but you have to remove the entries you don't want by highlighting and deleting . You can get the .deb from the link below.

    Thanks.

    I'll see if I can follow that up.

    A clipboard manager should be enabled by default in Ubuntu? See also: MASTER Copy-Paste doesn't work if the source is closed before the paste
