  2. Thanks for your work!

    But for me, Parcellite doesn’t start:

    mkfifo : No such file or directory
    mkfifo : No such file or directory
    error creating fifo
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    (installed the appindicator version on Ubuntu 64bit).

    Also, the PPA is empty…

  3. Verified on an empty directory. The fix is very trivial, but it is in SVN.

    Either build from SVN or wait for me to release. It shouldn’t be long. I uploaded to the ppa hours ago, but I can’t control when they build things.

  4. Done. Try 1.1.3. I’ve verified it works here. The joys of fresh code. :)

  5. Thanks! 1.1.3 runs, but the appindicator doesn’t display the clipboard history but only “About” “Preferences” “Save as” and “Quit” options…

  6. That’s because you have to set the clipboard to actually capture in preferences. Most of the boxes have tool tips so you can figure it out.
    If neither of the clipboard entries are checked, it doesn’t build a history. Look at the tool tips.

    Are you using the hot keys to get to the history? Ctrl-Alt-H is the default for the normal clipboard.

  7. I have both “Use copy (control-c)” and “Use primary selection” checked. Ctrl + Alt + H works ok, but the appindicator doesn’t display my clipboard history…
    Rickyrockrat: Please send me an email. I’d like to discuss how you think it should work. I find Unity too restrictive and therefore don’t use it, so I depend on the community for feedback on how they think it should work. -Thanks

  8. This is because Appindicator breaks any ‘alternative’ menu actions.

    Appindicators have to behave all the same, so clicking the indicator will only get you the preferences. In sort, Unity decides how indicators work, not the applications. I can no longer provide different actions for Ctrl-Click, right-click, or Left-click behavior (or any other kind of click). There is only one behavior, and that is to show the menu.

    If you want to check out how parcellite used to work, use a different window manager other than unity, and will need to use the 1.1.4rc2 branch in SVN.

    You bring up a good point, though. I need to provide access to the history through that menu. I will do that post-haste… It has been added in 1.1.4rc3 -thanks for bringing that to light.
