I am using XCFE Arch Linux as a Virtualbox guest on a Macbook Pro. Trying to paste into Vim, which is open in gnome-terminal. How can I do that? The usual suspects ("+P, Middle mouse click, etc) are not working for me.

Shift Control V worked. Who knew?

That's the usual shortcut for pasting into gnome-terminal (Shift+Insert should also work). – user55325 Dec 22 '12 at 7:46
I can't find Insert on the Mac keyboard. – Matt Alexander Dec 22 '12 at 15:00
