Ubuntu – Can not paste into Gnome Terminal from Netbeans


When I copy something from another window then my terminal and want to paste it into my terminal (on the command line) the paste option in Edit is grayed out. Ctrl+V does not work in GNOME Terminal 2.29.6.

I try to copy form netbeans into a terminal. If I paste it somewhere else, in gedit for example, it gets pasted. So it is copied.

Using Ctrl+Shift+C/V does not work.

Is this a settings of from some sort?

You need to append a Shift when pasting into the Terminal: Ctrl+Shift+V Same with copying a selection only using a C instead:


Shift is the escape sequence for shortcuts when using the Gnome Terminal.

Alternatively you can Right Click->Paste
