Anyone know why, my copy & paste in the terminal doesn't work....it's there, just not highlighted, I need to install Sun Java and can copy the command lines from the forum I just can't paste them into the terminal. Also is there a way to check that my Ubuntu download to my USB stick is error free?
just installed ubuntu couple of days back on my netbook. I am still a beginner, enjoying my adventure exploring ubuntu. I have another desktop which runs on XP. I am able to access XP shared folders through my netbook(linux). However, i wanted to copy files from XP infact folders using TERMINAL in my netbook, not copy and paste using my mouse. Are there any commands for it?
I can't Copy, paste, select all, or find with my keyboard... pretty much all the commands that involve the Control key don't work. in firefox... the edit> copy, paste , etc commands are actually grayed out too.
I can't copy & paste text from an Evolution email message without first pasting the text into an editor like gedit or a word processor and recopying it a second time... Then it works fine... I thought the problem may have been a Delphi forum specific problem, but it also does the same thing on this board...
I running 10.04 with the default Evolution mail program.
BTW on Delphi I can turn off the wysiwyg editor and paste as "source" and it works just fine without the paste and recopy step...
I am experiencing an issue where the first time I copy and paste it works fine. But after that it just pastes garble. I've installed glipper and if I clear the clipboard after every copy/paste its fine.
At first I upgraded from 10.04 and this came up so I thought I would just do a clean install of 10.10. It was still happening.
In Ubuntu, why does copy and past not work for most applications. I can't tell you how many times I have copied some text and went to a new application and Past is greyed out. For example, in Firefox I can highlight some text like "Belmont Diner", then right click and choose "Copy". Then go up to the Google search bar and right click and Paste is not an option. I have tried doing this using Crtl C to copy and Ctrl V to paste. It does not work...most of the time. Every once in a while it will but most of the time it does not. I can repeat the action to make sure I really copied the data and still no luck. Sometimes it works but many times it does not.
Whenever I try to copy and paste something from Opera to Thunderbird (or FireFox) the copied text does not appear when I select paste. (or control V) My work around is to place the copied text into a empty document, re-highlight, copy and then the paste into Thunderbird will work.
Opera Version: 10.61 Build 6430 Thunderbird 3.0.6 System x86_64, 2.6.32-24-generic
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. Now I am organising the structure of maps and folders, etc. My struggle is that I seem to have no permission to copy, paste and move files to another place then the home folder and the desktop.I am a total newby in Ubuntu and coming from a Windows operating system, so please give me some assist. I guess it must be very simple, but I don't have a clue at the moment.
I am running ubunutu 9.10 and am having problems with the Kate text editor (v3.3.2). I leave my computer on for many weeks at a time as it is part of a network and others use it to run code on. During this time I am using kate as my text editor, and copy and paste from kate to other applciations, such as the terminal.
Infrequently but regularly enough to cause me trouble I can no longer paste text I copy from kate. I can copy and paste within kate, but I cant copy from kate and paste into the terminal or thuderbird, or firefox etc.

Has anyone seen a seamless way to create a symbolic link via a GUI based file manager? I have been using PCManfm because I find it fast, but I can copy the file but paste a symbolic link instead of the actual file.
The usual vim yank and paste works only in the same window (but does work across files and close/save commands). Is it possible to make it work across terminals (yank from window in one terminal and paste in another) and if so, how?
I'm trying to copy paste about 5k lines from a vi text file onto a website but obviously manually selecting the text from my screen and pasting it one page at a time is time consuming so I was wondering if there was an easier way to do this?
I started having some serious issues with my mouse after running updates yesterday. I am basically unable to copy and paste any text and this is making editing essays a major major major PITA! Basically when I click and drag my mouse to copy, the highlight looks good until I unclick then nothing is highlighted. Even trying to double click on words to highlight single words results in the entire paragraph being hightlighted. For my two laptops running 9.10 I have to disable the touchpad, I prefer a usb mouse, after logging in, but if leave the touchpad enabled the problem still exists.
This problem only showed up yesterday, after the update as best I can tell, and disabling my touchpad for like the past 4 or 5 releases, including 9.10. I run xubu/xfce4, but I have booted into Gnome and its the exact same problem. I have the problem on two laptops, both running 9.10, and both were updated yesterday.This is not one of those childish "that's it I am going back to winblowz, Linux suxorz!" , but I will have to temporarily go back and use MS Office until I can find out what is wrong here, b/c I gotta get essays written and without being able to copy text it is very rudimentary.
I am now converted over to ubuntu 10.04, love it everything works perfectly. However i use windows 2003 server for my files and remote desktop and my outlook email, i can remote desktop and do everything but i can't copy and paste a url or a text name. Is there a way around this or something I have to turn on ?
I want to copy about 40GB - to a partiton. There are two hard drives in my box one won't boot but I can aaccess it and mount partitions and I aim to move data from it to a new bootable hard drive. Doing a simple cp copy command may not be the best way to copy and paste such a large chunk? Also I want to backup the data I plan to copy/paste using a USB hard drive to backup. But I could also paste data from the backup to the new drive instead of from old internal hd to new hd. - that's another option.
I am having a strange problem whenever I copy something from a webpage I see content more than required copied and I then have to manually go and delete all the content. This has been quite frustrating. I am using Ubuntu 9.04 and Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop. What should I check?
I am trying to Copy and Paste a link on Fedora 8 (I am using Window Vista) and I can't find a way to do this.. I have tried "Right and Left" click at the same time... I have tried "Shift-Ctrl-C and Shift-Ctrl-V.. plus all the others with no results.. I am working from root on a Console...
I'm using SSH (with -X specified) from a Ubuntu box to a RHEL4 box and running GVim. It opens as expected in my local X, but the copy and paste via select doesn't work. I cannot select text in GVim and paste in a local window, nor can I select text from a local window and paste in GVim. This works, however, when I SSH (with -X specified) to a different RHEL4 box. Is there something I need to install on the remote machine? I am running Parcellite 0.9.2 on the local box, but closing it doesn't make the problem go away, and it is not interfering with the other box.
I'm using a work computer so i don't have a root access. I've tried "+y, "*y, set clipboard=unnamed. It looks like my vim doesn't support +clipboard (version 7.0).I'm using Linux Centos 5 so fakeclips doesn't actually help (i think)It's a pain to type stuff manually from firefox to vim or other apps and vice versa.
