copy&paste with keyboard?


hi all.

i've used middle mouse button for copy-paste..

today i found a program 'kilipper' stores copy histories..
i wonder if i can use klipper with key storkes to copy&paste

i looked at their manual, but seems there's no explanation..

thank you...

They should have some documentation, but if in reality they don't have enough for you, it's a very simple program and i'm sure you would be able to pick up on quick. It's just a small little graphical program that sits docked in the panel. If you are running KDE as your desktop environment, it should already be there, it comes standard with it. If unsure, open a terminal and type klipper.

Klipper

What I've seen it do is
1. highlight what you want to copy.
2. Click on the Klipper clipboard icon on the task bar. A list of all the recent items you've highlighted. The list will show the first word/words of what you've copied. Click on the one you want to paste.
3. Put your mouse pointer where you want to paste and hit ctrl/v.

klugey but it works

you might want to give this a try too:

copy: ctrl-ins
paste: shift-ins

thank you all...

actually, ctrl-c ctrl-v worked just like in windows

however, klipper stores more than one copy history..
i wonder if i can bind key strokes for copy-paste with klipper..

ctrl-alt-v opens up klipper menu
i can scroll the menu with arrow keys.
hit enter : select the copy history..
and click middle button where i want it to be pasted <--- can this be binded to a hot-key?

thank you
