As an MS Windows user I used to copy&paste a lot of text from one place to another. Between documents or web-pages or what not ...
In order to be able to keep multiple clippings of text and/or pics, I used either two little small freeware. One was Ars Clip and the second was Clip-X.
Note: If you still insist on using Windows, I recommend that you at least use the portable versions. They create less holes in the registry.
I missed this feature on Mint until I found Glipper which is a clipboard manager for gnome.

I use in on Mint 13 Maya - Mate 32 bit.
Have fun :-)
I tried this and it did not work
I have installed mint 13 and what as you described works
I just installed this in Mint 14 (live) and though it didn't add any menu shortcuts I didn't have to reboot, just run glipper in a terminal (or alt-F2). Maybe a log out-log in would fix up the menu or even auto-start it, but I wouldn't want it to auto-start anyway unless I told it to...
Does seem to work ok though.
A quicker tutorial might be "run sudo apt-get install glipper then run glipper" :-)
In Linux you almost never need to reboot (unless you upgrade the kernel or some running libraries): It’s enough to log out from the current GUI session and to log in again.
