That depends of course. I use 'vim' to edit files and 'tmux' , so most of the time I copy text from terminal (from opened man pages, sample config files, output of another command in another terminal section, ssh sessions, etc) using keyboard shortcuts.On 4/10/19, Alexander V.

What I have now is right-click brings up a menu where I have to left click on paste. ick. How do I find out what other terminal programs are already installed that I can try? What terminal programs are available that have a 'right click pastes text' option _and_ has a scroll bar that is 1. easily visible 2. goes up/down a page at a time when left-clicking above/below the scroll bar 3. has up/down buttons on the scroll bar that scrolls a line at a time when clicking on the button Thanks LeeTry keyboard shortcuts instead. Shift+Ctrl+V - Paste It's more convenient IMO, you won't move your hands away from keyboard and simply continue typing after paste.But how do you get something into the paste buffer without using the mouse?
These programs encourage you (and make it possible) to use more of a keyboard and much less of a mouse.
Left double-click to select a "word" & right click to paste is pretty much automatic for me now - which is why I'm looking for a xfce4 terminal replacement Thanks anyway tho Lee
