    Cheers for this list; I’ve had trouble installing many of these so I just went down the list and tried others! Clipit and Parcellite install but fail to launch, GPaste needs GTK 3.20 which fails to install.

    CopyQ installed but you can’t copy from it to external window (that option is bugged). Finally had some luck with Diodon. Installed it by adding their repository to apt and then apt install – easy enough.

    Had to dig around a bit to find how to set a global shortcut. If anyone else is looking, here’s how: https://esite.ch/2015/07/using-custom-shortcuts-of-de-as-diodon-hotkey/

      Honest to goodness, this is one problem you won’t have with Windows, will you?

      Things like this and the infamous “dependency hell” often make me wonder why Linux is so hyped by its proponents.

        Ha, yeah, I seem to remember Clipboard Recorder on Windows was pretty decent. On the other hand, Windows eats your hard drive like a hungry shark (even CCleaner can’t keep up as you notice your real estate shrink and shrink) and it’s not free. This is where Linux hype comes in.

        Disclaimer: I haven’t used Windows 10 so dunno if the hard drive problem still exists there.
