Slowly getting into Ubuntu and would like to hear from experienced Ubuntu users what their favorite clipboard manager is.
I don’t use any clipboard managers at all, but a quick search brought up CopyQ.
Maybe you can give it a try.
I use clipit works good and is very light weight - install in terminal
sudo apt install clipit
I actually use both CopyQ and ClipIt. Sometimes, it seems that ClipIt misses a “Control+C”, but CopyQ has got it.
I just use what’s “native” - i.e. the default “X” behaviour I’ve been using in UNIX for decades…
Select some text (e.g. highlight) with the mouse cursor and it’s “automagically” in the clipboard (the “special” X clipboard, i.e. not always available with CTRL+V). I’ve never felt the need for anything other than what’s “in the box”…
Middle button click (or emulate three buttons if on a 2 button mouse like a trackpad) to paste that text…
I hate it when that doesn’t work - e.g. sometimes fails to paste into Gnome Text Editor or “gedit” - but - it ALWAYS works from one terminal to another - or from a webpage into a terminal (and vice versa - e.g. highlight some error message from a terminal - it’s in the clipboard - press middle button [e.g. scroll wheel press] in your browser’s address bar and go !) … elementary’s terminal app warns you before allowing the paste into a terminal… and it’s always wise to make sure you don’t also select the “hidden” carriage return at the end of a line of text - so you can preview it in the terminal before running it (or edit it before committing)…
And I hate it when I have to use Windows - it’s so slow and cumbersome to get a line of text into the clipboard!
Hi, It’s Clipit for me, tried loads but Clipit is simple to use & light on resources
