Can not paste into terminal

We use Ctrl+V to paste stuff from clip board.

But this is not working on terminal window.

What is the keyboard shortcut to paste on a terminal window?

I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Ctrl-Shift-C and Ctrl-Shift-V are the respective shortcuts. Another thing that also works with Linux (in general): if you mark a fragment of text, without any shortcut, you can paste it in by clicking the middle mouse button. –  January Oct 18 '12 at 12:27

You have to use Ctrl+Shift+V to paste into a terminal. Copy is similar; use Ctrl+Shift+C to copy from a terminal.
