Public bug reported:
Copy and Paste with the C and P keys on the right click menu does not
work in GNOME Terminal 3.18.3 (included with Ubuntu 16.04). The ability
to copy and paste this way used to work in the version of GNOME Terminal
included with Ubuntu 14.04 (3.6.2, I think?), so this is a regression
from that version.
The keys for the other menu options (Open Terminal (T), Profiles (R),
Read-Only (O), Show Menubar (M)) can be restored by going into
preferences and activating the checkbox for "Enable mnemonics (such as
Alt+F to open the File menu)" -- however, copy and paste are not
I frequently paste using the menu key (menu key, P), so this is a very
annoying bug that I run into every day now that I've upgraded from
$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
$ apt-cache policy gnome-terminal
*** 3.18.3-1ubuntu1 500
500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages
Expect to happen:
Pressing P when the right-click context menu is open should paste from
the clipboard. Pressing C when the menu is open should copy selected
text to the clipboard.
What happened instead:
No response when pressing the keys. No underline for an alternate key is
shown either. Presumably the shortcuts ("mnemonics"?) for these entries
are missing in the code.
