Garidio 1.0 Beta
Garidio is an application that allows users on a network to share the contents of their desktop clipboards with each other.
It has been successfully tested on Mac OS X (Tiger), Windows XP (SP2), and Linux (Slackware, SuSE, and Ubuntu), but it should work fine on any system with a working JVM for Java 1.5.
· Java 1.5 or later
No real installation is needed. Just unpack this archive and everything you need is
in the executable JAR-file so all you have to do really is run it. On some systems
simply double-clicking the file will do that. From the command-line however this
would be done like this:
java -jar Garidio.jar
However, if you want to be able to run Garidio just like any other program you might
want it installed somewhere in the Path of your system like /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin
(this applies only to Unix-systems, Windows-users should be able to run Odine simply by double-clicking the JAR-file).
To make this easy for you the tar-ball contains an install-script, install.sh (for
Unix-systems). Depending on where on your system you try to install Odine you may have to be root in order to run the install-script.
Simply run the script from a command-line and give the directory where you want Garidio installed as an argument. Like this:
# install.sh /usr/local/bin
This will create two files in the chosen directory, garidio (a simple shellscript) and
Garidio.jar (the actual application, copied here). Once these files are in place you
should be able to call Odine simply by giving
from the command-line of your system.
If you for some reason want to fiddle about with the classes that make up Garidio just
extract them from the JAR-file.
The idea is pretty simple and The GUI should be pretty selfexplanatory.
If you want to share your Desktop clipboard with other users on your network, you start a server-instance of Garidio.
If you simply wanna be able to fetch clipboards from servers, you use the client-side of the application.
Plus, if you like, there's nothing stopping you from running both a server and a client
at the same time.
