[ubuntu] Copy paste?

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello! Just formatted my Mac to run Ubuntu purely :D But I have a dilemma: how do I copy paste? I know I can highlight the text, right click, and say "copy" but that's cumbersome. The good o'l command-c shortcut opens Dash Home. So my question: is there a keyboard shortcut for copy/paste? Thanks in advance, Will1982 (Hardware)
