The KlipOQuery-Panelapplet for KDE is meant to be a bridge between Klipper and the Web. By simply copying the active item from the clipboard, KlipOQuery will pass this string to the selected service from the popupmenu. [view project in german]

From Source:

./configure (default prefix ist /usr/kde/3.3)
make install

./configure --prefix=/usr/lib/kde3/
make install
ln -s /usr/lib/kde3/lib/ /usr/lib/kde3/
ln -s /usr/lib/kde3/lib/ /usr/lib/kde3/
ln -s /usr/lib/kde3/share/apps/kicker/applets/klipoquery.desktop /usr/share/apps/kicker/applets/klipoquery.desktop

Installation with Gentoo Ebuild:

  1. If you want to have the ebuild present after an emerge sync command, add a portage layer in /etc/make.conf (e.g. PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage)
  2. Place the ebuild in your default /usr/portage/app-misc/ or your custom portage dir
  3. (Optional but Fail-Safe) Copy the Source Package [KlipOQuery v0.2.4] to the /usr/portage/distfiles directory
  4. Proceed with the common emerge -[p]v klipoquery command

Add to dock

Relogin into your KDE-Session, then RMB on the dock -> add -> panelapplets -> klipoquery
Please make sure that the klipper applet is also running. Otherwise klipoquery is not able to work!

Add a service

In the preference dialog, you will see a filetree like visualisation of the available services. By clicking the right mouse button (rmb) on a group item you can add a service. In the textbox you can change the items Name, Description, URL and the activation. So lets start how to modify a web url:


Groups are just for a better visualisation, nothing more nothing less.


This is actually for very huge lists, so that you can deselect services you won't need without deleting them

Top[1-10] List

Shows your [1-10] frequent accessed services.

Anything forgotten?


If you got suggestions, bug reports (yes it is possible), or additional services, please send me a mail.

Hope this application is usefull.
