    there is something built into KDE called Klipper, but since i've
    never seen or used M8 *or* Klipper i have no idea either what you
    need or what KDE has..

    give it a try

    I have KDE 3.x installed (tho' use gnome as default); but can't find klipper there or on trying any of the repo's (including packman) or from here: Software.openSUSE.org (1-click install).

    hmmmmmmm...it is part of the default KDE desktop...down in the right
    corner, a little clipboard icon with a K in the middle...

    i guess (since you have KDE installed) you can (in Gnome) try Alt+F2
    and type

    klipper

    in the blank, and hit enter, and see what happens....well, look down
    in the "task bar" and see if there appears a Klipper icon
    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klipper>

    if so, click on it and spend 3 minutes reading and you will know more
    about it than i do!!

    my GUESS it will have more features and options than the M8 you
    miss...let us know!!

    Well, there is, ye ol' xclipboard.
    And webpin returns 'glipper' as result.
