Copying Text


In Konsole I'm able to select text by holding the shift hey down and moving my mouse. And I can paste text by pressing shift-insert but how do I COPY text that I have selected?

On my slackware you just select or highlight text, and then press the middle mouse button to paste it.
If you have two button mouse, you should enable emulate 3 buttons in XF86Config and then you can emulate the press of the middle button by pressing the two buttons at the same time.
