Ubuntu – Remove Klipper from Kubuntu


How can I remove klipper from Kubuntu 18.04?

I tried apt remove klipper but Package 'klipper' is not installed, so not removed. I tried to search installed packages with apt list --installed | grep -i clip, apt list --installed | grep -i klip etc. but no result.

Is there a way to remove it? If not, can I disable it?

  • "Klipper" is part of the plasma-workspace package and cannot be uninstalled without removing all of KDE.

    It can be disabled by going to System Tray settings > General > Extra Items. Uncheck "Clipboard".
