In this entry I describe how to make Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V do Copy and Paste in gnome-terminals. Here is how to do it:
Open a gnome-terminal window and type the following commands:
Add the following to .bashrc
> stty intr ^K # free Ctrl+C for copy
> stty lnext ^- # free Ctrl+V for paste
> stty -g
> stty -g > ~/.stty # store the settings in home directory
case $- inNow using the gconf-editor, edit the gnome-terminal's key bindings (@ /apps/gnome-terminal/keybindings key).
stty `cat ~/.stty` # reload the stored stty settings
bind -u quoted-insert # unbind the quoted-insert function of bash - free Ctrl+V for paste
Close and reopen the terminal window. And now Ctrl+C will copy and Ctrl+V will paste.
