Can't paste on Terminal

I'm here from MX for speed. The Bunsen lithium is awesome but I can't paste anything on terminal. Copy paste works on everything else. Tried different combos including Shift+Ctrl+v.

Edit: Sorry for the wrong board as well.

Which terminal are you using? Shift+Ctrl+v, is keys for default terminal on the 64 bit installation. On 32 bit installation, default terminal is urxvt-unicode, with keys Ctrl + Alt V, for pasting and  Ctrl + Alt + C for copying by the mouse higligted text.

I'm using the 64 bit installation. I've tried both of those key combination. I've not changed any configuration from fresh install (except for fixing my wifi device can't be started).

Aswell right clicking doesn't work on terminal.

Re: Can't paste on Terminal

So what terminal are you using? It is hard to gues what you shall do if you do not deliver basic answers...

If you dont know what terminal you use, and it is started from the menu, it is started by the command /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator.

To find out what terminal it starts, open "galternatives". Browse in the list on the left, until you came to x-terminal-emulator, and mark it. In the window to the right, there i a list of installed terminals and default terminal is marked. If you do not like it, you can change.

BTW, when installing, did you a clean install or did you keep your old /home?

Re: Can't paste on Terminal

I seem to be using lxterm, changed and tried all options, copy and paste works on lxterminal.
That solved my problem for now.
Two of the terminal don't works while copy paste don't work on any except lxterminal for me.

Re: Can't paste on Terminal

Middle mice button should work to paste with urxvt and lxterm.

Re: Can't paste on Terminal

lxterm is a wrapper around xterm (uxterm)
so:

man xterm

A nice little light-weight terminal with a 90 page manpage.  TONS of options

And testing what bronto said (centre-click) does the trick.

Thanks for the reminder guys.

Re: Can't paste on Terminal

I bumped into a similar problem with Helium and it needed a change in .vmdrc. Maybe this is a relatively simple fix for you too.

i.e. I changed

mouse=a

to

mouse=r
