Ubuntu Copy paste feature

I want to copy some code from the Bolt course to the Ubuntu terminal. By just pressing Ctrl+C or Ctrl+V won’t help me. How to do the same in the Ubuntu command line?

Try Ctrl+Shift+C to copy and Ctrl+Shift+V to paste in Ubuntu terminal.

Although, using Ctrl+shift is still better when moving between systems.

This will help you.

Try out Shift+insert and Ctrl+insert.

if your ubuntu version is 12.04,
–open the terminal
–go to edit(on top)
–click on keyboard shortcuts
–edit your copy and paste shortcut in the edit section
i hope this helps, cheers

Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V won’t work in Ubuntu. Instead you should highlight it and copy by right click and paste using options in right click.

Use Ctrl+Shift+c to copy and Ctrl+Shift+v to paste in ubuntu terminal
use the traditional method of copying and pasting with the right mouse click

In most applications Cut, Copy and Paste are Ctrl + X, Ctrl + C and Ctrl+V respectively.

In the Terminal, Ctrl+C is the cancel command. Use these in the terminal instead:

To cut Ctrl + Shift + X.

To copy Ctrl + Shift + C.

To paste Ctrl + Shift + V.
