coping using the mouse in the terminal screen

Hi There,

I am use to highlighting a word or expression and then right clicking the mouse and it is copied to where the cursor is.
This doesn't work with CentOS. you and copy and paste fairly easily but the habit is hard to quit. Has any one else experianced this. And/or is there a work aron-und or fix.

Thanks I have a scroll mouse. I needed to press both right and left key for it. Thank you for the quick answer.
