      I use openSUSE. For me the application I had to install is named
      "clipboard". When it runs it puts a paperclip icon in the default
      panel. I suspect it is be called "clipboard" for other variants of
      linux as well.

      With clipboard running the contents of the system clipboard are
      preserved even when the creating application is ended, and will be
      available for pasting in other applications.
