Your message is not informative enough. Please describe what you did,
what happened, and what you expected to happen. Something like this:
I started a gnome-terminal (window 1)
I started another gnome-terminal (window 2)
I selected window 2 for focus
I moved the mouse pointer over some text with the
left button held down in window 2
the text was highlighted in window 2
I moved the mouse pointer to window 1 and selected
I pressed the center mouse wheel button
I expected a copy of the highlighted text in window 2
to appear in window 1
the text did not appear
Then you can get some help. But at present, we have only a very
vague feeling of what might be wrong.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
