    xclip http://people.debian.org/~kims/xclip/ [debian.org] looks like it does what your looking for
    • Looks perfect, but it's a no-op on my system. It installed just fine, but even the example programs don't do anything :/

    • No error message? Have you tried both reading and writing,maybe your apps are using different buffers to what xclip is expecting.
    • I installed the debian package (from sarge) and the samples seemed to work well for me.

      The debian maintainer added a note to the copyright file (http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/x/xclip/xclip_0.08-4/xclip.copy right) that might interest you.

      "Since Kim Saunders is the upstream author and was the Debian maintainer and was missing, I'm doing upstream type fixes in my own repository which can be seen at: http://svn.ev-en.org/viewsvn.php?project=xclip"
