Keepboard is a clipboard manager available for many OS platforms (multi-platform) that allows to save clipboard history of data (text, images, etc.) copied under Linux or Windows systems.

Keepboard Installation

As the application is portable, we will install it in the home directory with following commands:

mkdir ~/keepboard && cd ~/keepboard
wget -O Keepboard_Linux_3.1.zip http://goo.gl/5Ulda
unzip Keepboard_Linux_3.1.zip
