Can't Copy and paste in Xubuntu


For some reason, I cannot copy and paste into Xubuntu. I am not sure why. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I can do to fix this? Thanks!


Copy from where into where?


select the type of shared clipboard you want from Settings -> General -> Advanced.

Host being the OS itself and guest the OS you’re using on virtual machine (in your case xubuntu).


So you are trying to copy and paste from your host OS to the VM?


I have the same problem


@PointGivin & @fpriotti I suggest installing guest auditions in the Xubuntu guest. Try following again the steps mentioned in the guide

good luck :smiley_cat:


try using ctrl +shift+v when pasting into Xubuntu
