    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You don't need this tool with Linux. Most desktop UI's have a clipboard tool that will allow you to configure it to behave much this way.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    9 – Clipboard Management

    By Default in ubuntu when u copy something from an application and closes the application u will not be able to access it from the clipboard. And also when u copy severals text in serial u only have the last on available to you in the clipboard. To solve that install either of the following but Glipper is better because it supports plugins.

    Glipper

    sudo aptitude install glipper

    Then right click ur panel → Add to Panel then drag Clipboard Manager to ur panel

    To read the Glipper manual, right-click on the Glipper icon in the panel and choose Help.

    I installed pclinuos Full monty and it has multi clipboard. It's pretty same as jetpaste, only difference is key shortcuts. But I suppose that it can be fixed. I'm only using it for couple of days
    Thanks everyone for responses.
