On my work pc I have putty and cygwin setup to copy when I select text, and paste on right click.

Have been trying to get that same combination working in ubuntu. Trying various terminal applications, but haven't found one that delivers.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Could it be the middle button that pastes? –  ott-- Aug 2 '12 at 12:31

The convention with X is to copy the selection to PRIMARY on select, and to paste from PRIMARY on middle-click.
