Quick Copy/Paste under Ubuntu

April 2018


Under Ubuntu there is a quicker alternative to make a Copy/Paste other than using the native CTRL V and CTRL C combinations.

You simply select the target text (it is uploaded in memory) and press the button 3 of the mouse to paste it.


  • This is useful to copy and paste into a terminal (no need to add the "Shift" the usual Ctrl + V).
  • As the text stored using this method does not replace the one stored by the Ctrl + C, you can copy and paste items at the same time.
