you might be looking for gpm
Description :
Gpm provides mouse support to text-based Linux applications like the
Emacs editor and the Midnight Commander file management system.  Gpm
also provides console cut-and-paste operations using the mouse and
includes a program to allow pop-up menus to appear at the click of a
mouse button.
