Glipper is a clipboard utility for the GNOME panel. Glipper appears in the notification area. It maintains a history of text copied to the clipboard from which you can choose. It supports a configurable number and length of clipboard entries and saves the clipboard history on exit. It also uses plugins to give the user extra functionality, including support for Actions, Snippets and No-Paste.

Glipper used to be a GNOME applet, but it now has AppIndicator support to support Ubuntu Unity and Ubuntu's Gnome Classic.

Glipper has some of the advantages of KDE's popular Klipper but runs natively on the Gnome desktop.

Features include:

  • "copy" clipboard is filled when you use the copy function of an application. Usually the copy function is used by selecting text and pressing Ctrl+C, or with a Copy button
  • The "select" clipboard is filled when you select text in any application. As soon as you select any text, it is put in the "select" clipboard. To paste text from the "select" clipboard, simply press the middle mouse button
  • Select an element from the clipboard history and replace it with the current content of the clipboard
  • Extendable with plugins:
    • Snippets - create snippets from history items
    • Network - connect multiple Glipper processes via network to synchronize their history
    • Actions - define commands to run when an item matches a regular expression
    • Nopaste - allows you to paste the entry of your clipboard to a Nopaste service
    • Grow - detects whether a new entry is just a grown version of the previous one, and if so, deletes the previous
    • Newline - example plugin that adds a newline character at the end of items in the clipboard
  • Ubuntu AppIndicator support
  • Internationalization support
  • Portable - should run on any system that supports Gnome and Python
