i'ld like to create an gnome applet in python that, if left-clicked,
perform a particular operation using the text of the clipboard.
i've found this example:
# get the clipboard
clipboard = gtk.clipboard_get()
# read the clipboard text data. you can also read image and
# rich text clipboard data with the
# wait_for_image and wait_for_rich_text methods.
text = clipboard.wait_for_text()
this work with cut and paste direct operation, but it doesn't catch a
selected text (that can be pasted for example in a document via the middle
clik of the mouse)
