Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Diodon is a lightweight clipboard manager for Gnome and Unity, with support for the Ubuntu indicator. Also, it has a clipboard sync feature, the key combinations can be changed by the users and has a customizable size.
The latest version available is Diodon 1.2, which has been released a while ago, coming mostly with bug-fixes. Among others, it now runs at startup properly, the typelib has been binded to libdiodon and the application has been migrated from liunique to GtkApplication.
In this article I will show you how to install Diodon 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
