Clipboard manager again

been using Qlipper for a while but now it's "misbehaving",then found copyQ that works just like the windows clipboard (which i find convenient and just what i want).
with a little tweak i got it to behave like the windows clipboard.

to install

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hluk/copyq
sudo apt update
sudo apt install copyq

the Ctrl+C copies and Ctrl+V pastes just like usual , but what i want is to press windows key +V to get the popup box with history in clipboard and scroll through and press enter to paste a selected one.
To achieve that go to settings - keyboard-application shortcut.
add copyq toggle as the command u want to trigger with shortcut , and press windows key+V as the key shortcut (or any key you want to use).

Thats about it ,works nicely for me ( i'm on 17.1 lite )

PS: i just used the apt install copyq i didn't add the repository 1st , and it works fine .
