It would be nice if this page gave some clue of what the applet is for, what it does, something like that.

if the applet says "gpaste not installed", follow the from If you use an Arch-based distro, that means you have to install the package "gpaste". If you use a Ubuntu-based distro, install the packages "gpaste", "gpaste-applet" and "gir1.2-gpaste-4.0". ( You can skip "gpaste-applet" if it doesn't exist. ) Other distros: Check if there's a package for GPaste. If there isn't, check the GitHub page linked below. then restart cinnamon, it should work now.

Correction... my curl fetch of the .js file retrieved the whole HTML document, not just the javascript. When I copied the actual code info GPasteHistoryItem.js and restart Cinnamon, GPaste reloaded starts and I can see the strings in my paste history again. Whew.
wiscodisco-9 months ago
I was using the hack by pms967 that replaces the stock GPasteHistoryItem.js with the specified file. With the recent update I can no longer see the strings in the list, I could, however, see the history with the main GPaste program. I tried the pms967 hack and now GPaste Reloaded won't even start. So I'm without the important functionality this applet used to provide. What can I do to help?

The last 2 weeks, history is not shown or history items are shown empty. History is shown correctly on GPaste App.

Update: replacing the file: ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/ with the (old) one available here: seems to fix the problem.

Great! But I wonder why the maintainer does not fix it after over one year. Gpaste is one of my favorite applets but unfortunately does not maintain activity.

Just broke my Cinnamon. Had to timeshift and lost a ton of work. You guys should really consider removing it until it's fixed
Vulcanraven-1 year ago
Next time switch to terminal Ctrl + Alt + F2 Applets are stored in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets Delete the directory in there. So no need for timeshifting.

If you get "GPaste is not installed" then you can "apt-get install gir1.2-gpaste-1.0" to get it working
petrus2586-1 year ago
Effectivement, cela fonctionne après . J'ai rajouté ce paquet à "gpaste" et "libgpaste11" que Synpatic m'avait proposé par défaut. J'ai ensuite refait mon installation d'applet puis relancé Cinnamon et... j'ai eu le plaisir d'avoir l'icône Gpaste apparaître. Grand merci

Thank you!! You're the best. Worked great using Gpaste v3.36.3 from the PPA and Mint 20.10.

Doesn't work on Linux Mint 19.3 "GPaste is not installed" when you try to invoke.

Breaks your entire desktop with no path to fixing it. DO NOT INSTALL

`sudo apt install gpaste gir1.2-gpaste-1.0` then it works. I just installed it :)

Спасибо тебе! Я так сделал. Работает.

Very usefull. But at install, it freezes Cinnamon. A force logout is necessary. At next login, it's working fine. (On Linux Mint 18.2 with Cinnamon 3.4.6.)

Wow. Adding this to the panel sends my Cinnamon into a death spiral. It crashes, restarts only to instantly crash again etc...

If you have "Gpaste is not installed" error when adding the applet to a panel even when you have gpaste already installed, you may also need to install gir1.2-gpaste-4.0 package. Somehow that package is not pulled when you install gpaste from repository.
Sam-5 years ago
What all packages are needed to get this running? The message just mentions gpaste, and I already installed that, but it doesn't work.

I like Diodon, it offers hotkey and much more. It's not an applet, so it's your decision of what you want to use.

I really liked it!! But is there any war to assign a keyboard shortcut to "show the applet", so I just press it and I can search through my history, for example? Thanks!
Feuerfuchs-5 years ago
Right now there isn't a native confoguration for keyboard shortcuts, but you can assign a keyboard shortcut to the following command to make the applet appear: 'gpaste-client show-history'
Feuerfuchs-5 years ago
(I mean, assign that command using Cinnamon's keyboard settings)
