Can't Copy and paste in Xubuntu


#1

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!


#2

Copy from where into where?


#3

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).


#4

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


#5

I have the same problem


#6

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

good luck :smiley_cat:


#7

try using ctrl +shift+v when pasting into Xubuntu
