I think that I have the proper settings that should allow me to use Command V to paste into my Parallels Ubuntu command line:

But when I try to paste into the command line using Command V nothing happens. If type that twice in a row ^V appears in the command line, but not the text in my clipboard. How can I get Command V working to paste?

  • The caret "^" and the letter is a symbol that you get when when you press Ctrl, not Command and letter combination. Do you have it remapped or are you using an Apple keyboard? – Allan Nov 7 '16 at 18:06

  • have you tried to paste using ctrl + v? – Dion Nov 7 '16 at 18:29
  • Yes. I'd rather not have to use ctrl, but it didn't work either way. – Abe Miessler Nov 7 '16 at 18:37
  • Did you install the Parallels Tools properly? – klanomath Nov 7 '16 at 22:11
