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
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)
