Making Ctrl+C copy text in gnome-terminal?

I am have installed Ubuntu 10.04 right now, and I am getting quite a bit of code examples from my browser, Firefox, where the usual ctrl-c short cut works but it doesn't seem to work for pasting the code directly, ctrl-v, into the shell console.

This isn't a critical issue,pasting with the mouse still works,but any suggestions as to how to activate ctrl-v or what the correct native short-cut for the console is would be great.


In gnome-terminal you have to user Shift-Ctrl-V to paste and Shift-Ctrl-C to copy.
