Copy Clipboard Between Windows XP and Ubuntu Machine
 
Hello!

I have a Windows XP Professional machine and a Ubuntu machine and I want to somehow link their clipboards together. I have searched the forums quite exhaustively and found a lot of things involving X Windows emulation in Windows, but I'd prefer the least obtrusive option available since my Windows Machine is primarily a gaming rig and it needs all of its resources.

Any help, resources or ideas would be wonderful! Thank you in advance for the help!

I think rdesktop can copy to and from a windows machine

Yes, RDesktop can copy between them, but that involves opening a remote desktop application on a machine every time you want to copy something. I'm curious if I can do something akin copying in Windows and having it dump the clipboard information onto the Linux machine so they share a clipboard.

Synergy has the ability to share a clipboard across platforms, but as a whole package, it may be more than you need.

A couple of years ago, I used a java-based clipboard across platforms, Remote Clip. iirc, it was kinda clunky, and didn't always work. You may have better results, tho'

cheers,

If you run Cygwin on the XP and then slogin into the linux machine with -Y switch, the clipboards are linked together.
