No upgrades within these days?  From the version 0.9 the plugin listens
to a specific X11 atom which is untested on different platforms but it
should just work in general for X11.  By default the plugin listens to
the default clipboard (Ctrl+C), and optionnaly to the primary clipboard
(selections).  Can you configure the plugin to see if it can capture
the primary clipboard?

Can you try with another clipboard manager?  Parcellite (GTK+) or
