apt-get -f install - hosed up

I have tried to download several software packages in the last few days (KDE, Synaptic, etc) and I keep getting a message that I should run apt-get -f install. When I do that I get a string of errors. How do I copy and paste from XTerm console onto this posting so that everyone can see my errors? I have tried mouse copy/paste, ctrl-c, ctrl-v all to no avail. Obviously I can't do much until I can do the apt-get -f install so I need some help with this. I am running Feather Linux 0.6.0. Thanks.
