Ubuntu: How do I copy and paste files from one directory to another using the mouse?



Question:

On Microsoft Windows, I right-click on the file and choose "Copy". I place my cursor on the target directory, right-click on it and choose "Paste". The file will be copied to the target folder.

It seems that Ubuntu 12.10 does not have this function.

Is there a workaround?


Solution:1

It seems that Ubuntu 12.10 does not have this function.

Yes, it does. In exactly the same way. Example image:

It shows both cut (move) and copy as options. Paste is added/highlighted when you have something to paste:

The only reservations I have with this:

  • You need to have permissions to use the location you want to move/copy files to. If you do not you need to have the admin of that system open that location for that user.

Is there a workaround?

No and not needed either.


Solution:2

My 12.10 installation using session fall back desktop environment provides these option once a file is selected and right-click on that file Nautilis Applications | Accessories | ScreenShot is available to aid taking screen shots
