GNOME Clipboard Manager

GNOME Clipboard Manager (GCM) makes copying and pasting easier and more productive. It will automatically synchronize the mouse selection (the primary selection) with the clipboard (the clipboard selection) and store the contents of the clipboard, making it possible to go back to a previous clipboard. You can save and load clipboards, edit them, and convert them to another format.

            Love gcm - clipboard manager

            When I try to configure gcmapplet2.03 I get can't find libgcm, yet I have installed libgcm.

            The 2.0.2 release
            The 2.0.2 release changes the scope of the project a bit. Two new core components are introduced and the main component is now a hidden deamon. The other components can make the deamon show it's UserInterface.

            Libgcm is the library for controlling the deamon and gcmapplet is a sample PanelApplet that uses libgcm.

            GNOME Clipboard Manager is also pluggable from now on.

            Other changes include, of course, bugfixes, HIG fixes, automake fixes, fixes in the CVS (deleted some files), and Documentation fixes.

            I released Gnome Clipboard Manager 2.0 for Gnome 2.0 desktops. This release is actually a new application if you compare it to gcm2 1.0 so the module in CVS and the name have been changed to gcm-2. Gcm-2 is Gnome 2.0 only. So you need a Gnome 2.0 desktop environment in order to run and use Gnome Clipboard Manager 2.0 for Gnome 2.0 desktops.

            The one major improvement vs 1.0 is the support for multiple targets.

            The GNOME 2.0 port compiles

            The GNOME 2.0 port of Gnome Clipboard Manager compiles since yesterday. The only issues left are the Search/Replace feature which is not working anymore and the PanelApplet support which is by default leftout at this moment (Use -DAPPLET to tryout what already works)
