[solved] Right click in a terminal and copy/paste functions

I'm coming from a hiatus from Debian, after being on Arch forks for a while (ArchLabs,Manjaro). In both of those distros, I had the ability to right click in the terminal, whether it be Terminator or Termite and then click copy or paste.

With Bunsenlabs however, I'm discovering that that functionality isn't there, and if I do select some text in the terminal and then try right clicking, brings up the context menu, but the option to copy is greyed out.

Seeing as this was available in the Arch forks in both Terminator and Termite, I feel like this isn't a terminal configuration issue, but something higher. Any ideas on how to get this implemented?

Works for me:

Maybe my config: ~/.config/terminator/config

That's really odd, this is a fresh install and I haven't touched the config, but loading yours fixed it. Thank you for your help.

Mine is an old one I have been using for a long time.  Glad it helped.

Re: [solved] Right click in a terminal and copy/paste functions

I've just tested this in a Terminator window running off the default BunsenLabs config, and copy/paste works for me too.

Confirmed c/p is OK in a freshly installed system on a VM too, so @fritzgrant could it be that you imported some configuration from somewhere else?
