    hi there.

    i am trying to figure out how i can use command-C and command-V for copy and paste in the ubuntu terminal, and was wondering if another mac user has figured out how to do this.

    there are different places where one can fiddle with bindings. i have changed the settings to command C and V in the preferences for the terminal in ubuntu terminal; however these shortcuts aren't working, e.g. command-V fstill opens a video search.

    wondering if any other mac users have figured this one out??

    thanks very much, jacki.

    I have the same problem. I can cut/copy/paste between the host Mac OS X operating system and other apps in Ubuntu, but I can't copy/paste from/to terminal even staying within Ubuntu. I've tried control-C/V command-C/V, control-command-C/V, control-shift-command, etc., and absolutely nothing works.

    From the lack of online mention of this problem, I can only assume that it's rare, which makes it all the more mysterious.

    It is...
    • Control-Shift-C for copy
    • Control-Shift-V for paste
