Thread: Glipper: Removed From SUSE Studio Repos?

  1. #1

    Question Glipper: Removed From SUSE Studio Repos?

    Was Glipper recently removed from the SUSE Studio repos? A search comes up with nothing, where previously it was a part of the repos.

    For those unfamiliar with Glipper (from Wikipedia):

    Glipper is a clipboard utility for the GNOME panel. It allows users of Unix-like operating systems to access a history of X Selections, any item of which can be reselected for pasting. Glipper is often described as the GNOME counterpart to KDE's Klipper. Older versions of Glipper could also be run outside of GNOME, but the newest version 1.0 is GNOME only because of its heavy integration into different GNOME techniques.
    Has Glipper been absorbed within a group of applets for Gnome now (and if so, which package provides it?) or has it been removed from the repos? (If so, why?) I have included the Community and Pacman repos and searched within them without finding Glipper. Glipper should not be confused with KDE's Klipper application, which also turns up an empty search result but I assume Klipper is integrated within KDE through another package.

    OT: Is it possible to search the repos via SUSE Studio for content within the packages descriptions and files provided by each package or is the search field limited to the package names only?

    Has -Glipper- been absorbed within a group of applets for Gnome now
    (and if so, which package provides it?) or has it been removed from the
    repos? (If so, why?) I have included the _Community_ and _Pacman_ repos
    and searched within them without finding -Glipper-. -Glipper- should not
    be confused with KDE's 'Klipper' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klipper)
    application, which also turns up an empty search result but I assume
    Klipper is integrated within KDE through another package.

    Hi

    the contrib repositories;

    Found it, thank you! I had forgotten to add that particular repo.
