Erm... no.  If you want ctrl-c/v to work, you need to be running an 
application that supports those hooks, be it independent or part of your 
window manager.  If you just want a clip board, X itself provides that 
with the middle mouse button.  You can even run moused and get that 
behavior in the terminal without an X server.
