gpaste for gnome

Gpaste is a clipboard manager allows you to keep a trace of what you’re copying and pasting. It is really useful when you go through tons of documentation and you want to keep around a bunch of functions you might want to use, for example. The clipboard manager will store a history of everything you do, so that you can get back to older copies you now want to paste.

Gpaste 3.2.2 and the couple of following ones (3.3 and maybe 3.4) are the last releases supporting GNOME <3.10. Gpaste 3.3 will add an Ubuntu Unity applet.

What’s New in Gpaste 3.2.2:

  • “Paste and Pop” is now only “Pop”
  • Fix SEGV at startup
  • Fix SEGV when deleting last item of history
