This question already has an answer here:

How can I copy a file with xclip, so that it is pastable as a file in file explorers?

I searched on google an so on and found stuff like this Copy file to xclip and paste to Firefox, but there it is always about the content of files. What I need is being able to copy a file with an xclip command so that I will be able to ctrl + v in the file explorer.

I am using deepin 15.8 beta and if I copy a file with ctrl + c I get this one in the TARGETS, which seems like an indicator somehow: x-special/gnome-copied-files

But eg. when I copy a file with this, I am not able to paste it in the file manager:

xclip -selection c -i -t x-special/gnome-copied-files test.txt
