PostPosted: Tue 26 Jan 2010, 06:15    Post subject:  Parcellite 0.9.2 clipboard manager
Subject description: New version
 

Parcellite puts a little icon in your system tray to keep a list of your clipboard (cut/copy) and your primary selection (which is what gets pasted when you click in a text editor [or wherever] with your middle mouse button). A welcome side-effect is that it takes ownership of what you cut/copy or select... so you can past it even after closing the application that you cut/copied or selected it in.

This latest version fixes the bug that prevented openoffice (and probably other things) from cut/copy and pasting images... in fact I think the bug and fix apply to "binary files" in general - i.e. everything except text.

BTW I also just found (too late Sad) that there is a patch to fix the corresponding bug in old (C not Python) versions of glipper (like we use in Puppy).
http://opencoder.net/glipper-fixes.patch
EDIT - there is actually a "glipper-lite" in cvs, with this problem fixed, and it handles binary clipboard data better than parcellite - see my next post for a description and a link.

Both applications after being fixed no longer prevent you from pasting pictures, but neither do they include the pictures in the clipboard history.

I have discovered this, and filed a bug:
Quote:
It is impossible to tell the difference between the situation where the
clipboard and the Primary selection contain the same text, and the
situation where the cliboard contains text but the Primary selection
contains binary data (e.g. a picture selected in openoffice.org).


This is not a problem with glipper-lite, which you can get at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=389799#389799

No, the options. So with long bits of text, the bits that trigger your memory to what they there are shown. It also syncs the mouse clipboard and the keyboard clipboard together.

During the 4.2 build I was looking for something that worked better than glipper, I came across Parcellite and tested it, the copy feature featured worked better than Glipper, and after that I tossed Parcellite into my icewm package and it was included in 4.2. With parcel-lite you have a "Edit Clipboard" feature that allows you to store text directly into the clipboard which is handy, kind of like a sticky note system Smile There isn't really any size different between the 2, Parcellite is the the better of the two.

Running Boxpup-431.

How do I get Parcellite to display its icon down at bottom right in the system tray without having to manually run the program during each session?

p.s. How do I increase the width of the small display of "Free memory"?
It isn't quite wide enough to display all of 870M.
The M is only half displayed.

I never tried it but open /root/.jwmrc-tray
and change the width, it should look like
<Swallow name="freememapplet" width="48">
<!-- freememappletdelayed -->
nice -n 19 freememapplet
</Swallow>

1. Parcellite is now displaying its icon in the system tray. Very Happy

2. File /root/.jwmrc includes the following code:
<!-- Additional tray attributes: autohide, width, border, layer, layout -->
<!-- Tray definition moved to separate file: .jwmrc-tray -->
<Include>/root/.jwmrc-tray</Include>

...But there doesn't exist any file = .jwmrc-tray. Sad

For the latest version 1.0.2rc2 - you can download directly from the developer site

It's a .DEB file - about 250KB.
working fine on puppy lucid 5.25.

For auto loading ( after X restart ) you need to make symbolic-link at: /root/startup/
the Special version with the auto "start-up feature" is basically the program binaries with the addition of this symbolic-link I wrote above.

Yeah, there have also been a couple of .pets in other threads since parcellite development was revived.
