  • If you are asking about the console , aka the command line without a graphical interface, you can use the mouse to copy paste if you install gpm which stands for General Purpose Mouse

    sudo apt install gpm
    

    Here is a video of it in action in Virtualbox but it is the same on a console outside virtualbox
