KDE Konsole to select text and copy to clipboard

In gnome-terminal, I used ctrl + mouse click > mouse drag to highlight a block of text.

Then I can use Ctrl + Shift + c / Ctrl + Shift + v.

How can I do this same thing in Konsole?

This isn't a duplicate. The answer to this question, I found, is to use Ctrl+Alt + ( Mouse Click > Mouse Drag ) to highlight a block of text. – bitcycle Sep 27 '12 at 20:11

Konsole can copy with ctrl + shift + c, and paste with ctrl + shift + v. My right click context menu on Konsole 2.7.4, KDE 4.7.4, Kubuntu 11.10, tells me these keyboard shortcuts.

Edit: There is actually a secondary buffer. Selected text is automatically added to this buffer, and middle click automatically pastes it. ctrl + shift + insert will also paste from this buffer. This can be changed under Settings > Configure Shortcuts > Paste Selection. ctrl + insert defaults to an alternate for normal copy, and shift + insert defaults to an alternate for normal paste.

See here.
