    I was looking for a clipboard manager replacement as glippy doesn't seem to be in development. Klippy isn't getting the job done so after a few searches I tested out a few. Copyq is super awesome but you need to look in the preferenes and take some time to learn it. You can take clipboard items and put them in it's own tab and encrypt them with gnupg, decrypt and copy with a simple shortcut.

    It's very much like the pimp ClipMate for Windows which I used for years and loved back in the day. You can add items to the clipboard from console or run shell scripts on your clipboard items. Waaay too many features to even go through but I love it.

    Here's the breakdown from WebUpd8:

    A cool shortcut that I didn't notice was that the items in the clipboard are numbered and if you use the shortcut to open the list it will automatically paste them items if you type in the number from 0-9. I've used it for a couple weeks and can't do without it. It's more of a clipboard and database manager.
