Ubuntu uses two clipboards: a recent implementation that triggers off
of Ctrl-V, Ctrl-C, and a legacy one that triggers off of highlight and
written to work harmoniously with the former, but not the latter.
"recent" is slightly misleading. Unfortunately Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V, Shift-Insert
selection and middle-mouse button are very dependant of the application
you are using. Whoever decided to port Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V to Linux desktop
should be hanged.

Thanks both of you, and I couldn't agree more! Not sure why there is a
need to take something is that is simple and worked great for years
and then muck it up with window-isms. And shame on google for screwing
up the same.
The terminal menu thing seems to work, but what a bunch of extra
effort, just for pasting.
