Ubuntu – copy and paste doesn’t work in terminal

command linepaste

When trying to copy and paste from the terminal, it doesn't work. Neither Ctrl + C nor right button after highlighting (no option to copy or cut appear).
I installed Ubuntu 12.4 for the first time a few days ago and maybe it is missing something. Copy and paste does work in Libre Office.

I hope these shortcuts are useful

  1. Ctrl+Shift+C : copy
  2. Ctrl+Shift+V : paste
  3. Shift+Insert : paste (In some cases, I can't paste data stored in clipboard from Intellij or Netbeans IDE)
  4. Use this tool for copying to clipboard: xclip
