[HOWTO] Install GPaste in Fedora 15

GPaste is a clipboard management tool for GNOME 3. It is not available in the repos and must be downloaded via git and compiled. Here is how you can do it:

UPDATE:
GPaste is now available in the repos, so you can install it by using Add/Remove Programs or by running the following commands in the terminal:

su
yum install gpaste

That should install GPaste. The following post is for historical reasons only.


Install Git

su -c 'yum install git'

Download GPaste sources

cd; git clone https://github.com/Keruspe/GPaste.git

Install Dependencies

su -c 'yum install gtk3-devel glib2-devel intltool automake autoconf vala'

Compile and Install

cd;cd GPaste
./autogen.bash
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
su -c 'make install'

Restart GNOME Shell
To restart, press Alt+F2, enter ‘r’ (without quotes) and press enter.

You should now see GPaste icon in the top panel.

    GPaste was accepted in the Fedora repos. It will be very soon available on testing repos, first.
    The RPMs are available on Koji for the moment:
