Copy / Paste terminal utility for Ubuntu

1. sudo apt-get update
2. sudo apt-get install xclip

Add an alias to the .bashrc file:

alias pbcopy='xclip -sel clip'

I am using the same command that is used on a Mac as the alias. I also have open alias to open a directory from a terminal:

alias open='xdg-open'
