Hi, I am a maintainer of CopyQ in AUR repository.
Would You mind posting a link to exactly 1.0.2 version? Github tag should be enough, because master branch will probably change in time and we don't want it :).

Hey, thanks. I didn't realize that I posted link only for the master branch on github. Here is the correct link: https://github.com/downloads/hluk/CopyQ/copyq-1.0.2.tar.gz

And thanks for sharing this with other Arch users :).

 List of exceptions

 by ShrecK on: Dec 11 2012

Add a list of exceptions for programs that do not need to transfer your clipboard (such as a password keeper).

In new version (1.4.0) this can be done from Preferences, "Commands" tab -- add new command, set "Window" field to match title of a window to ignore (enter a regular expression or basically part of the window title), lastly check "Ignore Item".

It's more complicated that using just simple list with exceptions but it's lot more powerful since you can store text copied in some windows in different tabs or process it with other application.

 Thought about suggesting your application to AMA?

Thought about suggesting your application to AllMyApps (http://allmyapps.com/developers)?

Also, I'm currently using your clipboard manager on my Arch Linux machine. It's everything I wanted in a clipboard manager!

I'm glad you like it! If you have any ideas for improvements, let me know.

 Broken Unity tray menu

 by hotice on: May 10 2013
Score 50%

The latest CopyQ 1.8.1 doesn't work in Unity: Ubuntu automatically converts Qt tray icons to AppIndicators and did so with CopyQ until version 1.8.0 but this is now broken in CopyQ 1.8.1 so clicking the icon doesn't display any menu.

Tested in Ubuntu 13.04.

 Add a Beep

Having CopyQ make a beep or ding sound after a item is copied so we can have a confirmation that the copy took place.

Finding CopyQ helped me leave Windows Vista for LinuxMint.

Always glad to hear that the app helps.

Following command will play a sound if an item is copied (activated with Enter key). Copy/paste or drag'n'drop the command to the list in CopyQ's Command Dialog (F6).

Name=Audible Copy
var audio = '/usr/share/sounds/pop.wav'
var audioPlayer = 'mplayer'
//var audioPlayer = 'aplay'


if ( config('activate_closes') == 'true' ) hide()
if ( config('activate_pastes') == 'true' ) paste()

execute(audioPlayer, audio)"
Shortcut=Return, Enter
