Copying and Pasting Text onto the Linux Terminal

While working with the Terminal, we sometimes require copying a long command, file name or text from the web, a tutorial, or simply from some text file. You might have observed that the simple pasting control, Ctrl+V does not work in the Terminal. We all know that copying a text requires selecting it and then either pressing Ctrl+C (for copying) or Ctrl+X (for cutting); so how do we paste the selected text in the Terminal? In this tutorial we will show you how to do so through a few examples we ran on Ubuntu 18.04.
