Clipboard Installation Failed

After reading a post on the board about Clipboards I decided to try one ..... I know absolutely nada about clipboards so I did a little search on the web and found this on Ubuntu .....

After what I thought was installing it it would not open ..... can't find it in the Main Menu or in System Settings/Extensions using Cinnamon which is my DE ..... so I uninstalled it using this .....

I followed the example given on the Ubuntu site and it looks like it was installed but what went wrong ?????? ...... is this a good clipboard or is there a better one ??????? .....

When I tried to open Gnome Extensions it said "something went wrong make sure you are logged into Gnome" .... so I just deleted gpaste .....

It is a Gnome Extension? What I found searching it was gnome-shell-extension-gpaste gpaste
But... You are using:

Cinnamon, not Gnome.

For Cinnamon D.E., you might try

sudo apt install clipit

If we won't be able to find clipit in the APT Ubuntu Repositories anymore it'll mean that Frog played too much with it.
