Hello!
Just formatted my Mac to run Ubuntu purely :D

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 :D

Neet trick. Didn't know I could do this. Thanks!

Not sure if this is solved or not?
I made this topic, so if you are using a touchpad it may help you out :)
