Re: Diodon or Clipit?

^I haven't looked on diodon, but most clipboard managers seem to offer the choice of deleting the history on shutdown, or not. I'd guess the default would be delete, for privacy reasons.

Re: Diodon or Clipit?

Today I updated an Debian 11 (Testing - Bullsey) LXDE box.
I got the message "ClipIt has been deprecated and is no longer supported.".

I do not like neither diodon nor xfce4-clipman. They draw more memmory, not possible to search.
There i many more cplimanagers...

Re: Diodon or Clipit?

Yes, it looks indeed as if clipit is deprecated on Debian Bullseye (ie for BL Beryllium) and a little notification script has been added (changelog): https://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/ … _changelog
I think the last line in the top entry "Diodon will be removed from Debian after Bullseye is released." is a typo for "Clipit will...".

@rbh if you find a nice simple clipboard manager please post!

Re: Diodon or Clipit?

You guys will have to clue me in, because one of the first things I do with a BL install is remove ClipIt.

What is the advantage of a clipboard manager over Linux's native copy/paste actions?

^ It's copy/paste with history. Usually selectable, save the last 5, or 10, or however many copy actions to choose from.

Re: Diodon or Clipit?

^ add to that a hotkey that pops up the history, select entry with Up/Dn & Return.
Also useful to synchronise primary selection and clipboard.
One of those "can't live without it" utilities.

Re: Diodon or Clipit?

^^^ ^^ ^ The first thing that hit me with Linux Copy/Paste was that if you make a selection, do Ctrl+C, then close the window the selection was in, it's gone! The copy'd text doesn't go into a cache anywhere, it's just a reference.

A clipboard manager fixes that.
History is useful if you want to collect quotes out of a long text, for example.
I don't use the other nifty functions a clipboard manager usually offers, but agree it's indispensible.

That also.
BTW, last time I used a Windwos machine this happened to me also.
