Clipboard manager-not klipper
I don't have KDE or GNOME installed on my laptop and use Fluxbox. I like the clipboard manager in KDE called klipper. Are there other clipboard managers that would work without KDE or GNOME?

This despite the name will run without gnome:
You can try this one too (seems a bit old..):

ok, I downloaded the binary, untarred & bunzip2 it (not in that order) and then typed:


According to ps -aux, it's running the clipboard. I don't see it in Fluxbox-how do I access it?

I don't know what you're excepting... from the link I gave:

Normally, when you copy something in an X application and you close it, the content of the clipboard is lost. This is probably one of the biggest reasons why people keep saying that copy & paste in Linux "doesn't work".

GNOME Clipboard Daemon is a program that keeps the content of your X clipboard in memory, so the clipboard won' get lost even after you close the application you copied from. It's a daemon - it has no GUI. You start it and it'll run in the background and Just Work(tm).
It doesn't not save a list of clipboard contents like Klipper.

oh, I'd like a GUI dock application that's similar to klipper and will store multiple things in the memory.

Is klipper the only such program?
