Fixing parcellite on Linux mint 10

Parcellite is a wonderful clipboard manager and enables history of copied items.

It's been a few days I noticed parcellite to be not working... It is starting up and I can see the tray icon but that's about it. There seems to be some problem with the parcellite on the Ubuntu 10 and LinuxMint 10.10 repositories.

So I just headed on the main website of parcellite: http://parcellite.sourceforge.net/ and downloaded the latest debian package from here.

Now it's working just as it should!


  1. Not working for ubuntu 10.04...

    I get this error when try to start from terminal :

    GLib-ERROR **: /build/buildd/glib2.0-2.24.1/glib/gmem.c:137: failed to allocate 18446744072761336206 bytes

  2. I had a similar problem on Mint Isadora, russian variant "Rosinka". When I try to open "Parameters" parcellite 0.9.2-1 immediately aborted.
    Thanks to your prompting I installed Debian-version parcellite 1.0.2rc2 and everything works!
