Description Rahil Bhimjiani 2022-05-13 22:53:20 UTC
by default it doesn't work. These is a fix mentioned on upstream's github. 

"For those using a systemd unit and not using a desktop environment which does it automatically, you must import $DISPLAY so that clipmenud knows which X server to use. For example, in your ~/.xinitrc do this prior to launching clipmenud:

systemctl --user import-environment DISPLAY"

Systemd users should be notified about this via elog
