Copy and past in terminal
January 31, 2009 02:54AM
I've tried all these methods:
-right mouse button;
-ctrl + c; ctrl + v;
central mouse button.

They don't work in terminal. Any hint?

Sorry, I don't have a mouse, actually is a touchpad.I'm working on a laptop, Aspire 1410, 1,3Gb. The touchpad also freeze sometimes and I have to run a program in iBar to defrost it. There isn't a way to copy and past without using the mouse?

Hello Capnion:


For those who need to copy and paste in console terminal or similar, and the methods they are expensive or complicated, the explanation of how to do it with a small and fast mouse movement.

a. Select the text you want using the mouse.

b. Move the mouse to the destination.

c. Click without moving the mouse, the left and right buttons at once and the text is pasted there.

Note: If your mouse has 3 buttons, you can take the center, the famous wheel.
F12 if i remember correctly emulate the right mouse button.
