autocutsel - keep the X clipboard and the cutbuffer in sync


autocutsel [-selection selection_name] [-cutbuffer number] [-debug] [-verbose] [-fork]
[-pause milliseconds] [-buttonup]


This manual page documents briefly the autocutsel command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
not have a manual page.

autocutsel tracks changes in the server's cutbuffer and clipboard selection. When the
clipboard is changed, it updates the cutbuffer. When the cutbuffer is changed, it owns
the clipboard selection. The cutbuffer and clipboard selection are always synchronized.
Since the VNC client synchronizes the Windows' clipboard and the server's cutbuffer, all
three "clipboards" are always kept synchronized. When you copy some text in Windows, the
cutbuffer and the clipboard selection are updated. When you copy text on the server using
either the cutbuffer or the clipboard selection, the Windows's clipboard is always


-selection, -select, -sel, -s {CLIPBOARD|PRIMARY}
Specify which selection to use. Default is CLIPBOARD.

-cutbuffer <number>
(Details of this parameter unknown.)

-debug, -d
Run with debugging mode.

-verbose, -v
Be more verbose. Reports the version and announces synchronizations.

-fork, -f
Run as a daemon program in the background. This is recommended when used from an X
startup script.

-pause, -p <milliseconds>
Wait some milliseconds before owning the selection.

Get the selection only when the button 1 is not pressed. This may help with
OpenOffice Writer.
