Hi list,

So, I'm usign an emacs extension that renders links to image as the
image itself, it's a minor mode called iimage.el. It works great, but
the fact that I need to copy the image somewhere first is a time and
flow - killer. Is it possible to hook up to the paste command and, if
it's a image in the clipboard, auto-archive somewhere in the
filesystem it and then return its URL?

Thanks,

Marcelo.

Hi,

I wrote some code to fulfill the proposal you discussed two years ago, using xclip and perl to yank image file in link format for org, and save the file named after the image's timestamp.

Which means it's working for xwin clones, and I'm currently using Ubuntu 12.10.

The function is named "x-selection-value2", attached at the end of this mail. I'm binding it to C-v. 

The naming of the yanked file is kind of casual. Please feel free to change it.
