When trying to copy and paste from the terminal, it doesn't work. Neither Ctrl + C nor right button after highlighting (no option to copy or cut appear). I installed Ubuntu 12.4 for the first time a few days ago and maybe it is missing something. Copy and paste does work in Libre Office.
I hope these shortcuts are useful
- Ctrl+Shift+C : copy
- Ctrl+Shift+V : paste
- Shift+Insert : paste (In some cases, I can't paste data stored in clipboard from Intellij or Netbeans IDE)
- Use this tool for copying to clipboard: xclip
Select the text you want to copy, then go to the place where you want to copy to and press the scroll wheel of the mouse.
This method doesn't require any keyboard shortcut.
You can use Ctrl + Shift + X for cutting the content and Ctrl + Shift + V for pasting.
You can change the defaults in the terminal:
In the terminal window menu you can go to "Edit" --> "Preferences", then the "Shortcuts" tab and select "Copy" and change it to "Ctrl+C", then select "Paste" and change it to "Ctrl+V" (you don't need to type it, just select the box and hit Ctrl and then C).
(this works in Ubuntu 18, I'm not sure about previous versions)
