I'm not sure if its even possible, but do you know a way of moving the content of the selection clipboard to the primary, to use as a backup, when a new content arrives on the selection one?

The operation would be like this:

  1. Move "MyText" to the selection clipboard
  2. Move "MyTextV2" to the selection clipboard. In this moment the "MyText" would be moved to the primary clippboard
  3. Move "MyTextV3" to the selection clipboard. In this moment the "MyTextV2" would be moved to the primary clipboard

I imagine that this would be useful as a form of backup of the previous selection. Do you know a way of achieving that on Linux?
