Full Version: Taskbar Clipboard Utility For Next Release?

I surely miss my little Clipboard in the taskbar from Cacko and Sharp Roms which copies and pastes between all apps AND to the console.

If this is possible, I wish someone would put it into the newer releases.

Also, I request the SanDisk ConnectPlus network card to be working right out of the box in the new release. Hey, I can DREAM, can't I? It's halfway there because in Beta3 it is recognized by the card applet and works as a cf ide card with 128 mb of space!

You can use the standard X copy & paste by highlighting text in any window and then middle-clicking to paste it into another. To middle-click you hold down whatever key you set to be the middle-click modifier key in the Input configuration app (e.g. Fn).

I use this all the time to copy & paste between the console, Emacs, Dillo, etc.

I can't remember exactly what that clipboard applet did in the Sharp ROM but if it's anything like the clipboard applets in KDE and Gnome then it should be very easy for someone to compile a package of a suitable one for pdaX. There's no need to wait for the next release to get this kind of feature.

Don't know why but this does not work for me. I've tried many different keys for middle click and it still does not work. I'm trying to copy from leafpad to rxvt. sad.gif

For simple copy/pasting i just select from leaf pad and press Shift + click in aterm/rxvt

I have tried 2 methods to output console text to a text file. They are:
-----------------
df -h > /data/dfh.txt
-----------------
and
-----------------
df -h 2> /data/dfh.txt
-----------------
The one that currently works for me is "df -h > /data/dfh.txt "

At one time in pdaxrom, this was the opposite. "df -h 2> /data/dfh.txt" worked but the other didn't.
I also noticed that if the text is not displayed in the console after using one of the above two methods, that this is working.
Substitute first command and path as needed.

None of these solutions works for me...even those in the thread. I have Xclipboard in a shortcut on my desktop but it never has worked for me so I should just remove it.
Function click or shift click or middle click don't copy between leafpad and console for me. Maybe I have some oddball setup.

Try this from leafpad to mrxvt. It just worked for me.
Ctrl+Shift+v = Paste X selection into active tab.

I opened a text file in leafpad, did ctrl+a to select all, then ctrl+c to copy, then switched to mrxvt and did Ctrl+Shift+v
This pasted my text into the console.
This is on meanie's pdaxii13 page.
tombraider
Yay, that worked into mrxvt but did not work into aterm or rxvt.
That's a start. :-)
Thanks.

I have an offtopic question. Why the need for more than one terminal? Why does pdax have three terminals? mrxvt has separate tabs.

I'm looking for a multi-clip clipboard app (like KDE's Klipper). Are there any around which (a) is not WM dependent (b) doesn't require a ton of dependencies?

Not sure if either of these might help:

I'm using "glipper" on r121 with xfce4
- lives in systray
- uses "middle-mouse-button" and "ctrl-c" entries
- has a pop-up menu (ctrl-alt-c)
- can save history
- ...

How do I install this app in pdaxromii13 or beta3? All I know is how to install ipks in package manager. It's in .tar.gz form.

It needs to be compiled...I would do it, but it would be for 2.6 kernels and may not work. I may DL the cross SDK for a 2.4 kernel and compile it later should nobody else do it/post it.

EDIT: Dang, I can't pass up an opportunity to help...I'll get it compiled, package it up, and post it either tonight or tomorrow morning.

EDIT 2: Having trouble with the cross-compiler...If somebody else cares to build it, be my guest.

I will try tomorrow if no one beats me to it. wink.gif

I just installed glipper and dependencies. I am getting this error when run in a console:
(process:7732): Gnome-CRITICAL **: gnome_program_module_register: assertion 'module_info' failed

It did launch however, and placed itself on the taskbar.
It is working. It has an option to bring it on top during copy operations. That's nice. smile.gif
I don't know if the error is effecting anything.
