I'm following Github's instructions for adding an SSH key. I've generated the id_rsa.pub file from my AWS EC2 instance, but I cannot complete the step that has me copy the contents of the file using xclip because I cannot install xclip onto the EC2 instance.
sudo yum install
You don't need xclip. Just
ssh into the EC2 instance and
cat the key to your terminal, then copy and paste it from your terminal to wherever you need it.
