Description airfullbete 2005-07-13 17:27:02 UTC
Version:           v0.9.6 (using KDE 3.4.1-1.0.fc4.kde, Fedora)
Compiler:          Target: i386-redhat-linux
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4

When copying large images, the transfert of the clipboard to klipper takes a long time (several seconds, e.g. 10-20s) and during this time the desktop freezes and is unusable. For example, if I ctrl-c on a 6Mpx image in the gimp, it takes 30 seconds for klipper to load 3 versions of the image. As a result ctrl-c is of no practical use in gimp since the desktop freezes every time.

** The image feature of klipper should be turnable to off **

Currently, the only way I found to have ctrl-c work normally in gimp is to quit klipper.

Thank you.

The real solution should be using TARGET_SIZES from http://freedesktop.org/wiki/ClipboardManager . However a quick grep shows Gtk doesn't support it, nor I'd expect anything else to support it :-/, so this wouldn't help right now anyway.
I'll add config option klipperrc:[General]:IgnoreImages defaulting to true to at least disable tracking images completely. Will be in 3.5.2.

Oh, and as for the link posted in comment #1, that person clearly doesn't have much clue about Klipper and its purpose (although the problem mentioned there is true, but as said above, that's fixable).

Actually size limiting is a duplicate of bug #33747, so I consider this one fixed.
