"Diodon is a lightweight clipboard manager for Linux written in Vala which "aims to be the best integrated clipboard manager for the Gnome/GTK+ desktop". It lightweight having a small memory footprint."
Diodon features include Ubuntu indicator, clipboard sync (primary selection and Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V clipboard) and an option to set the clipboard size.
Open a terminal window and run:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install diodon -y
Just in case you're running Ubuntu (and Unity), you might also want to install the diodon-plugins package which contains the "Unity Lens" plugin that provides access to clipboard history with the unity dash:
- Run diodon pressing Alt+F2 and type diodon before hitting return
- Access diodon clipboard history with the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+V (it can be changed in the preferences).
- Diodon will be added to Xfce session startup program list, however it's not enable. Just open "Session and Startup" settings and enable it (see this if you need help).
