Don't you just love the copy feature in PuTTy? Well I do.

Does anyone know a hack or a program that will allow you to make Ubuntu Linux copy when you highlight some text? ctrl+C is fine and all, but I prefer the highlight-to-copy mentality.

Thanks for any help guys

(P.S. For those of you curious I'm running the Intrepid Ibex Beta, aka 8.10b)

The terminal already does that? If you are looking for something for your applications, that is actually (mostly?) up to the application developer.

Highlight the text that you want to copy. Click where you want it to go. Bing!

Linux is much easier to c/p than Windows, imo.

X actually has two completely different clipboards. There's the highlighting one and the copy one.

To use the first, just highlight some text. To paste it, click the middle button on your mouse. I use this one whenever I have my hand on the mouse (which is rarely).

The second is a conventional clipboard that's used the same way the windows clipboard is. Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, etc. This one's great if you don't want to take your fingers off the keyboard.

Of course, you've also got the individual clipboard implementations in non-X applications, but you probably aren't interested in those :)
