Parcellite: rule your clipboard

parcellite_compHow many times did you get annoyed by the fact that text copy using <Ctrl-c> and middle click do not sync? In my case the answer is too many because I deal a lot with the terminal and select text via mouse selection instead of <Ctrl-Shift-c>. And how about recovering the link you copied 10 minutes back from an already closed webpage you were browsing? You can do all of this easily with Parcellite – a powerful yet lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager. It has a very small footprint but comes with all the features you will need from a basic clipboard manager:

  • Keeps a clipboard history.
  • Can manage copy and mouse selection together (with optional sync) or just one of these methods.
  • Add actions to run on <Ctrl-Left> on tray icon.
  • Various view options to display items the way you like it.
  • Edit options for copied text (like trimming).
  • Daemon mode; guard your clipboard contents when you close applications.
  • Configurable global hotkeys to display your items quickly.
  • Perform custom commands using clipboard contents.

Parcellite is available by default in the Ubuntu repositories. To install, run:

$ sudo apt-get install parcellite
