Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V will work with most X programs, others will use another technique. Simply highlight the text you want to copy and then middle click where you want to paste it. These two clipboards are seprate so you can Ctrl+C and Highlight something else, and both of them will still be available, through either Ctrl+V or middle clicking.
