other clipboards apps (eg. glipper) interfere with shutter

Asked by Marco Linux on 2011-04-01

First , thanks for shutter, you are high on my donate list, just figuring out how (paypal, flattr) works.

I notice that when Glipper (ummantained app?) is running, image copy and past dont work.
While I think its not shutter fault, maybe there is some way to shutter detect clipboard is "owned" and tell the user do deactivate the offending app.

Alternative (with the risk of kitchen sink , I know): shutter take care of text on clipboard too, like http://www.bluemars.org/clipx/
Currently, I use an instance of inkscape/gedit open all time, but I like clipx approach .

Using:
ubuntu 10.04
Shutter 0.86.4

Best regards,
Marcolinux
