I want to copy some text from a webpage and paste it into a file opened with xterm editor. How can I paste my text into the xterm edited file?

  • try middle-click or shift-insert to paste inside xtrem. – Avinash Raj Jun 20 '14 at 7:09

In xterm middle click works for me, as does Shift+Insert. There possibly are other methods, but those are the ones I just tested.

  • Thank you so much Tim. I have been in a big trouble this morning. Your command is so simple and does not require any tool to install. – user284234 Jun 20 '14 at 7:25

Give a try to ctrl+Shift+V for pasting text (which are copied from external sources) into gnome-terminal.

Also you can try to run Nano with multibuffer option

nano -E

then use both Ctrl+Shift+V or Ctrl+U
