xclip - Copy and paste inside console

Leave a Comment
xclip is a very useful tool that allow us to copy any output of a command (in the command line) to the clipboard. Let's see some examples: $ sudo apt-get install xclip We have to write our password and it will be installed. To prove it we are going to do an ls -a. $ ls -a | xclip To demostrate that it has been copied we can write the following command: $ xclip -o However if we want to copy it to our clipboard: $ ls -a | xclip -sel clip Now press Ctrl + V wherever you want!
You can use whichever command you want and also the content of a file: xclip -sel clip < ~/carpeta/archivo If it has been useful to you, share it!:)
