Qlipper should ask user after choosing 'Clear clipboard history' option to confirm selection of this option.

I'll probably release some kind of language pack in next version.

If you're in the hurry, instructions to make translations work are the following :

1/ edit the .ts file according to your language. Leave it where it is (in the /ts folder).

2/ run "lrelease qclip.pro" from the command line : this will generate .qm files in the /ts folder.

3/ move the .qm file corresponding to your language either in "/usr/share/qlipper/translations/" or "/home/YourUserName/.config/Qlipper/"

4/ app should be translated next time you run it.

The only thing I miss in Qlipper (which is a feature in KDE's Klipper) is screenshot grab with ctrl+printscr! Can this be implemented?

Hi,

I downloaded version 1.4 and tried to compile it in Windows, but there is a syntax error on line 327 of systrayicon.cpp: "and" should be "&&". The program also closes because it "could not write conf file" (line 24).

hi truefusion

I made a few modifications in version 1.5, hope they will solve the problem.

Unfortunately I did not test the program in windows myself, so I'll be happy you tell me.

It compiles without any modifications now, but it still "could not write conf file". I can get the program to run if i comment out line 27 of systrayicon.cpp and the program will work, but, of course, it won't be able to store any settings.

Another thing, under Windows (not sure about anything greater than XP, though) this program has a problem one of my programs had: popping up the menu with menu->exec() (i.e. when you left click the system tray icon) doesn't make the menu hide when clicking on a random spot on the screen. I know in Linux this is not a problem.

Nice GUI modifications you made, btw.

It appears to be more a Qt problem in Windows than a programming bug.

Which Qt version do you use in Windows ?

I think I'll have a try in windows by myself when I get time. Damn, it is supposed to be cross-platform !

adding the following code at the beginning of the constructor seems to solve the settings problem in Windows :

QSettings::setDefaultFormat ( QSettings::IniFormat );

I use Qt 4.6 in Windows. But i'll wait for a new version of qlipper to come out for testing.

Hi again. :)

Could you please add "clear" button so we can clear the clipboard? I've added it myself, but unfortunately, I am not able to make the function work:

Hi

that's possible !

Can you tell me where to find the 'clear' button icon ?

thanks.

Report

of course, it is "edit-clear-history.png" icon, found in:

/usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/actions/

(if you have KDE 4 installed). :)

Just what i was looking for. Small, lightweight, cross-platform, open-source, and uses my favorite GUI library.

Very small and simple clipboard manager, I added it to my startup right away, it uses 5 times less resources than Klipper and I didn't use the user actions anyway...
However it doesn't seem to work with selection clipboards as well, are they planned for the future?
