    Smile Copy paste?

    Hello!
    Just formatted my Mac to run Ubuntu purely

    But I have a dilemma: how do I copy paste? I know I can highlight the text, right click, and say "copy" but that's cumbersome.

    The good o'l command-c shortcut opens Dash Home.

    So my question: is there a keyboard shortcut for copy/paste?

    Thanks in advance,

    You can try Keyboard -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts and remove the shortcut for ctrl-c

    I am using 10.04

    Fixed, used ctrl-c instead.

    Thanks!

    If you have a spearate mouse you might also want to try my favourite method of copy/paste in Linux, no keyboard shortcuts or menus required at all: Just highlight whatever text you want to copy, and middle-click where you want to paste it. This also works for terminal windows, where the normal ctrl-c and ctrl-v shortcuts can't be used for copy/paste.

    Ah, yes, thanks mcduck! It's a lot more efficient than my clumsy ctrl shortcuts
