Install pastie in [X]Ubuntu 12.04 Precise (deb)

Pastie is a clipboard manager program. In Oneiric it could be installed by adding a 3rd partie ppa, however at the moment there isn't a Precise build. I tried to manually install the deb package for Oneiric on Precise and it worked.

Install

First install the python-gnome2 dependency:

sudo apt-get install python-gnome2 python-keybinder

Then navigate to http://goo.gl/UtNPI and download the deb file (something like pastie_0.6.7.5~ppam1_all.deb).

Finally install the deb file, either by opening it with "Ubuntu Software Center" or using a terminal window:

sudo dpkg -i pastie*.deb

    1. The error description is pretty vague, but I tried to install on another machine and add to install python-keybinder prior to installing pastie, so try: sudo apt-get install python-keybinder
