Post How to enable "CTRL+C" and "CTRL+V" in Terminal?


Hello.
I like copy and paste some text in terminal via Keyboard. How can I enable shortcuts?

Thank you.

Whats wrong with Ctrl + Shift + C and Ctrl + Shift + V to copy and paste. As for as Ctrl + C, its already used to interrupt the program that is running. So not a good idea to change that default settings.

I hate Mondays. I go to work and start using Windows. I always forget that now I have to select with the mouse, then type Ctrl+C, then click on the destination, then type Ctrl+V instead of the simply selecting with the mouse and doing a middle mouse button click (or Shift+Insert).
