Does cut & paste work in terminal? As in ctrl+c and ctrl+v?
In Ubuntu and Linux in general you have several ways of copying and pasting.
For apps not related to a terminal environment you can simply do the following:
CTRL+C - Copy
CTRL+V - Paste CTRL+X - Cut (Not available in Terminal by default)
On the terminal you simply add SHIFT to this shortcuts, like this:
RIGHT SHIFT+RIGHT CTRL+C - Copy
RIGHT SHIFT+RIGHT CTRL+V - Paste
The difference is that you need to use the Right keys.
Additional to this, if you have mouse support, this includes a quicker way to copy and paste information. by simply highlighting a text you are actually copying to a special clipboard that holds the last highlighted text you have selected. To paste this text, either on a non-terminal app or even inside the terminal you can simply click on the middle mouse button. This will paste the last text you have highlighted with your mouse.
