Looking for copy paste app

Postby Photon on Thu Mar 14, 2013 6:33 am

I have on Winodws Clipx which allows me to hold on to multiple copy elements, then I can choose which I want to paste from. I can't seem to find an alterantive in Linux Mint. Thank you for helping

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You have not mentioned your Desktop, if you happen to be a KDE user, Klipper has some amazing features.

The traditional expectation of a clipboard is that you can copy a section of text in order to paste it elsewhere. If you copy a section, the previous one is lost. Klipper solves this problem at a stroke. The item you copied last will still be the default one to be pasted, but others will have been stored in a buffer, so you can choose to paste your selections in a different order. Even the number of items stored in the buffer can be configured!


Also, if you are a heavy mouse user, middle-click copies and pastes text in a separate clipboard.
Cheers,

I like Parcellite. It's in the repositories.
