Copy SSH key to clipboard in Ubuntu

If you have landed here it means you have been somehow frustrated trying to copy paste something in Ubuntu console - just a guess -  its the rsa key since its too long to type manually.

Well, here is how to do it:

Make sure the rsa key exists, type the following command should work on almost all versions of Ubuntu

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

Another method is you can use PuTTy, just by opening the public key file and selecting your text with the left mouse button to manually copy paste.
